The Department of Labor (DOL) previously announced that it intends to engage in additional rulemaking concerning the H-2A visa program for the temporary agricultural employment of foreign workers. DOL initially announced it would conduct two public virtual listening sessions to gather input about possible changes to the H-2A regulations. The agency has added two more listening sessions, one for employers and their representatives and another for workers and their advocates.
DOL said it is “interested in hearing about the experiences of workers and employers,” so it encourages “worker and employer representatives to include their members’ perspectives in their remarks or to invite workers or employers to share their experiences directly.”
Below are the dates, times, and registration links for each of the sessions:
- Employers and Employer Representatives: Tuesday, December 6, from 1 to 2:30 p.m. ET
- Workers and Advocates: Wednesday, November 30, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. ET or Wednesday, December 7, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. ET
