DHS announced temporary changes in the requirements for H-2B workers in the food supply chain. The two temporary changes are: an employer may employ an H-2B worker for up to 60 days while the H-2B application is pending; and the H-2B worker may stay in the U.S. beyond the 3-year maximum. These changes only apply to aliens already in the United States with valid H-2B status who work in the U.S. food supply chain. This also does not affect the H-2B cap.
