New Ombudsman Program to Help H-2A Applicants and Advocacy Groups
The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) has established a new Ombudsman Program to help strengthen the H-2A Temporary Agricultural program. This new Ombudsman Program aims to support fair resolutions to concerns that show up in the H-2A program community. The Ombudsman Program will conduct independent, impartial inquiries into issues connected to the program. The Ombudsman Program will identify areas where agricultural workers and advocacy organizations are concerned with how the OFLC functions and will provide recommendations for continual improvement of the program.
The Ombudsman Program is a free service and may be of help to people facing issues caused by mistakes, errors or delays in the processing of their H-2A application. The program does not provide legal services and is not a way to obtain assistance with completing your H-2A application.
