H-2B action needed
Update from the H-2B Workforce Coalition:
The Senate just released its continuing resolution to fund the government through Dec. 9. A summary is below. The returning worker exemption is apparently not renewed in the bill, which means we have to work even harder to get it included in the final omnibus appropriations bill that will be drafted after the elections. Please continue to urge your lawmakers to support the inclusion of a returning worker exemption in the final omnibus appropriations bill that will be taken up in December.
Also, USCIS has said that employers can continue to designate returning workers on their H-2B petitions in the event that the returning worker exemption is reinstated in December. This will help take some pressure off the cap if we are successful in December. Please see announcement below from USCIS.
