Preventing Harm to Existing H-1B Workforce and Misclassification of Workers
On November 9th, 2020, we submitted a comment in response to the Interim Final Rule RIN 1205-AC00 – Strengthening Wage Protections for the Temporary and Permanent Employment of Certain Aliens in the United States. There are three proposed rules in play at the moment: one proposed by Department of Labor and two proposed by the Department of Homeland Security.
This comment is in response to the Department of Labor rule. We believe modifications are needed to prevent harm to the existing H-1B workforce and prevent misclassification of workers. We also urge the administration to insist on similar high standards for workers of all skill levels and all work visa categories.
