DOL has announced that on April 26, 2012, the new H2B Regulations 2012 was preliminarily enjoined by the U.S. District Court for Northern District of Florida, Pensacola Division, and was never implemented. Therefore, for the present time employers should file their H-2B labor certification applications under the previous 2008 regulations.
Our readers may recollect that we had reported in our April Newsletter about the preliminary injunction ordered by the District Judge, preventing the 2012 Final Rule from being implemented for at least 60 days. We will keep our readers informed as soon as we receive more information from DOL in this regard.
Contact VisaPro, if you have any queries about the H2B process in general, or about the new H2B Final Rule 2012. We will be happy to help you.
