On Wednesday of this week, the US Department of Labor (DOL) released the final rule that rescinds newspaper advertising requirements for employers seeking to hire H-2B workers. The final rule, which is being published in the Federal Register today, won’t replace the existing requirement that employers place print advertisements with one that requires employers to place internet advertisements, as the administration originally proposed, however it does provide that DOL will post an electronic advertisement on an employer’s behalf on SeasonalJobs.dol.gov, an improved and expanded version of the electronic job registry that DOL is required to maintain under its existing regulations,” the rule says. The agency says the change will address concerns regarding “employers who have limited or no access to the internet.” The job registry will also allow language translation services.
