Seasonal Employers Face New H-2B Visa Regulations for 2009
Independent agencies can offer compliance assistance to Hotels, Resorts and other Seasonal Employers who hire international staff.
Employers are the sponsors for their workers' H-2B Visas, however many employers do not have the time or manpower to dedicate to keeping up to date on regulatory changes, filing governmental paperwork, monitoring compliance, and employee recruitment so they turn to one of several independent agencies to assist them through the bureaucratic red tape.
These agencies often assist employers with recruiting efforts as well as Visa compliance. According to Daniel Reisner, Program Manager of the not-for-profit InterExchange H-2B Visa USA program: "Our role is to help employers make sure they meet or exceed the new 2009 regulations for hiring seasonal international workers, and then match employers with qualified international applicants. We know the new regulations inside and out, and we can greatly simplify the visa process. Employers can focus on running their business, not recruiting."
Large hospitality employers currently use H-2B workers to fill out housekeeping, dining room attendant, kitchen, and front desk staff positions during the busy winter months.
More information on the H-2B Visa Regulations can be found at the U.S. Department of Labor website:www.dol.gov.
