Update on H-2Bs
The White House H-2B Worker Protection Task Force released a report announcing new actions to identify items to meet the following challenges: (1) threats to H-2B program integrity; (2) H-2B workers’ fundamental vulnerabilities, including their limited ability to leave abusive employment situations without jeopardizing their immigration status; and (3) the impermissible use of the H-2B program to avoid hiring U.S. workers. The report addresses these challenges and advances these five objectives: (1) protecting workers involved in labor disputes, (2) better leveraging existing program data, (3) reducing workers’ vulnerability to employers and recruiters, (4) increasing workers’ access to key information, and (5) establishing an ongoing Interagency H-2 Worker Protection Working Group to promote worker protections in the H-2 programs.
