Trump Administration to H-1B Employers: There’s a New Sheriff in Town
The United States Department of Labor (DOL) recently announced plans to “protect U.S. workers from H-1B program discrimination by providing greater transparency and oversight.” DOL says it will take the following actions in defense of our domestic labor market:
- Rigorously use all of its existing authority to initiate investigations of H-1B program violators.
- Consider changes to the Labor Condition Application – used to determine the wage paid to H-1B employees – for future application cycles.
- Continue to engage stakeholders on how the program might be improved to provide greater protections for U.S. workers, under existing authorities or through legislative changes.
