ACTION:

Notice of webinar.

SUMMARY:

On February 12, 2010, the Department of Labor (the Department or DOL) amended the H-2A regulations at 20 CFR part 655 governing the certification of temporary employment of nonimmigrant workers in temporary or seasonal agricultural employment. See Temporary Agricultural Employment of H-2A Aliens in the United States, Final Rule, 75 FR 6884, Feb. 12, 2010 (the Final Rule). The Department's Final Rule also amended the regulations at 29 CFR part 501 to provide for enhanced enforcement when employers fail to meet their obligations under the H-2A program. The Final Rule also made changes to the Application for Temporary Employment Certification, ETA Form 9142. All H-2A applications filed as of March 15, 2010, the effective date of the Final Rule, will be required to comply with the requirements set forth in the Final Rule.

The Department held three public briefings across the country to educate stakeholders, program users, and other interested members of the public on changes to the H-2A program made by the Final Rule and on applying for H-2A temporary labor certifications under the new regulations using the ETA Form 9142. The Department is issuing this notice to announce that it has scheduled a webinar briefing to educate stakeholders, program users, and other interested members of the public on applying for H-2A temporary labor certifications under the Final Rule, using the ETA Form 9142.

Time and Date: March 25, 2010, 10-11:30 a.m. Eastern Daylight time.
