Bringing Workers to the U.S. for Temporary Jobs

How Does the H-2B Visa Program Work?
You may have heard that there is a numerical limit or “cap” on the total number of people from approved countries who are eligible to receive an H-2B visa in a given year to work temporarily in the U.S. in nonagricultural jobs. That statement is true, and it underscores the importance of working with a skilled attorney to navigate your through the application process.
The process requires the employer to undertake a rather elaborate employment recruitment procedure known as temporary labor certification. In somewhat simplified terms, securing a temporary labor certification requires an employer to comply with the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and applicable state-level workforce agency to ensure that bringing in foreign workers will not negatively impact U.S. workers who may be interested in those jobs.
Our firm will walk you through the complex steps involved in this detailed process. This includes securing a prevailing wage determination and documenting the results from required recruitment efforts aimed at the local workforce. We will help through all phases of the temporary labor certification process to submit the required materials to DOL.
Take Action to Benefit Your Business
When DOL has approved your employment recruitment plan, we can then apply to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for the H-2B visas to bring over your temporary foreign workers. Our services include not only working with you to gain USCIS approval of your H-2B petition, but taking care of consular processing for the foreign employees who will be the beneficiaries of your efforts.
We invite you to give us a call today at 843-376-4085 or toll free at 888-370-5810 to schedule a free initial telephone consultation with an experienced H-2B visa lawyer.
