The Department of Labor finalized changes to the H-2A agricultural visa program on Friday to replace prevailing wage guidelines and permit businesses to stagger the entry of workers into the U.S. The final rule’s changes include requirements that employers electronically file key documents to apply for the H-2A program and provisions allowing small businesses that offer part-time work to jointly file a single H-2A application and employ the same workers full-time. The rule also allows government officials to inspect employer-provided housing, which is mandatory under the program, for up to 24 months and order improved living conditions. The rule will go into effect 30 days after it is published in the Federal Register.
