As the fall time approaches, it comes time to look forward towards spring employment!  (a little early, right?  Not for immigration!)  Fall is a great time to start preparing for the H-2B Temporary Non-Immigrant employment-based visa season.  An H-2B visa is for seasonal, peak load, one-time or intermittent need temporary employment, not to exceed nine months.  Examples of H-2B visas employment includes landscaping, snow plowing, tree climbers/pruners, hospitality work in hotels and resorts, and equestrian grooms.  These are just some examples of the kinds of employment that meets the criteria of the H-2B visa.  While the H-2B is a great opportunity for employers to find foreign nationals to come in and work a job, the process is complex and constantly changing.  With new rules in place for this upcoming season, it is critical that employers and potential foreign national beneficiaries contact and use a reputable and knowledgable attorney to help navigate the Department of Labor and USCIS.
