  • Major Changes in the World of H-2B Seasonal Visas

    Recorded On: 12/03/2015

    Review visa options for those in the club industry that employ seasonal employees and hear best practices, strategies, and common traps surrounding bringing foreign national employees to work for an organization.

    2015 has been a tough year for seasonal businesses that rely on the H-2B Visa Program. After months of highs and lows where seasonal businesses saw the H-2B visa be at the center of a federal lawsuit, have its processing suspended, be subjected to a lack of clarity with the process, and unforeseen delays, the industry was rocked again with the issuance of a new Interim Rule that drastically changed the H-2B visa requirements. These regulations recently went into effect, first applying to clubs with October 1st seasonal start dates and later. These regulations have a major impact on private clubs that typically rely on seasonal staff.

    Attorney Keith Pabian will present a webinar on visa options for those in the club industry that employ seasonal employees and will discuss best practices, strategies, and common traps surrounding bringing foreign national employees to work for an organization. He will also discuss his initial impressions of the new regulations and provide insights and tips into how to manage the new process and requirements.
