SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Need for Correction

On December 19, 2008, the Department of Homeland Security published a final rule in the Federal Register at 73 FR 78104 changing requirements affecting H-2B nonimmigrants and their employers. At 8 CFR 214.2, DHS inadvertently:

  • Stated in amendment 5.aa that a new sentence would be added at the end of paragraph (h)(11)(i)(A) instead of saying that the last sentence of the paragraph was being revised;
  • Omitted a period after the paragraph heading for paragraph (h)(6)(C); and
  • Ended the sentence in paragraph (h)(11)(iii)(A)(2) with a “:” instead of a “;”.
