Take Action: Support the H-2B Returning Worker Exemption


The H-2B returning worker exemption provides important relief from the annual cap on H-2B visas by exempting an H-2B worker from the current fiscal year’s cap if they have worked for the petitioning employer during the previous three years. The provision was in effect until September 30, 2016. Employers are encouraged to contact their senators and representatives and ask them to reach out to their party leaders to support the inclusion of the H-2B returning worker exemption in any funding bill to keep the federal government open past April 28, 2017.
