Temporary Relief for Employers Using H-1B Visas

Earlier this month, a federal judge placed an immediate hold on a series of damaging visa restrictions that would prevent manufacturers from filling crucial jobs with H-1B visas.

The favorable ruling was the result of a complaint led by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) following the Trump administration’s actions to restrict the issuance of H-1B visas to highly skilled foreign workers for temporary employment.

H-1B visas are commonly utilized by manufacturers and specialty equipment contractors trying to compete with the rest of the world for skilled labor. This guidance document was recently updated by the U.S. Department of State to summarize the court order. Contact OMA staff to learn more. 10/12/2020
