ETA Extends Comment Period for Proposed H-2B Rule
In early October, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to change the process by which nonimmigrant workers in temporary or seasonal non-agricultural employment are authorized to work in the U.S. In addition, this proposed rule would change the ways that regulations are enforced to employers of such workers.
As part of this proposed rule, ETA has allowed for a comment period for the text of the rule up to November 4, 2010. However, the agency received a number of requests to extend this comment period and has fulfilled these requests. The comment period for this proposed rule will now be open an additional 8 days, to November 12, 2010
