The U.S. Department of Labor will conduct a virtual listening session for employers and their representatives to gather input about possible changes to the regulations governing the H-2A visa program for temporary agricultural employment of foreign workers. DOL’s stated goals are to listen, engage the public, and hear from many voices who could be impacted by potential changes to the regulations. Separate sessions for employees and their representatives are being offered.
DOL is interested in hearing about the experiences of workers and employers, so they encourage employer representatives to include their members’ perspectives in their remarks or to invite workers or employers to share their experiences directly. We invite you to join the virtual listening sessions for employer representatives with Department of Labor officials. Please find below the breakdown and registration links to the sessions:
- H-2A Regulations Listening Session for Employers
When: Tuesday, Dec. 6 from 10 a.m. –11:30 a.m. PT
