The H-2A Today: What You Must Know to Be Successful - Recording (.MP3)
2:00 PM (ET)
INA §218 authorizes the lawful admission into the United States of temporary, nonimmigrant (H-2A) workers to perform agricultural services of a temporary or seasonal nature usually lasting no longer than one year. Before the employer seeks approval from USCIS in its I-129 Petition for H-2A worker, it first must obtain the essential “TLC” (Temporary Labor Certification) from DOL. The practitioner must be knowledgeable of the multitude of governing regulations in order to completely, yet efficiently, prepare the H-2A application and effectively guide the agricultural employer through the myriad of H-2A steps, all in a compressed period of time. Our seasoned panelists will advise on “best-practices” in this highly-regulated and multi-faceted area of immigration law.
