More H-2A Listening Sessions

November 29, 2022 (1 min read)

OFLC, Nov. 25, 2022

"The U.S. Department of Labor previously announced that it intends to engage in additional rulemaking concerning the H-2A visa program for temporary agricultural employment of foreign workers. The Department will consider new ways to support worker voice and promote employer accountability. As we review the Department’s H-2A regulations, we are eager to hear from stakeholders that represent diverse interests and perspectives.

The Department of Labor initially announced it would conduct two virtual listening sessions, one for employers and their representatives and another for workers and their advocates to gather input about possible changes to the H-2A regulations. The Department has added two additional listening sessions. Each listening session will offer the opportunity to give input into the possible rulemaking, so participants need attend only one session.

Our goals are to listen, engage the public, and hear from many voices who could be impacted by potential changes to the regulations. We are interested in hearing about the experiences of workers and employers, so we encourage worker and employer representatives to include their members’ perspectives in their remarks or to invite workers or employers to share their experiences directly.

We invite you to join the virtual listening sessions for worker and employer representatives with Department of Labor officials. Please find below the breakdown and registration links to each of the sessions:

These are public events. Registrants will be emailed a Zoom link one day before the event begins. Please note that if you have already registered for a session, you do not need to register again.

If you require an accommodation or language interpretation to attend this listening session, please email at least five (5) business days prior to the event so we can make arrangements.
