Live webinar! Your H-2B questions answered with Davis Bae of Fisher Phillips

In 2022, the Department of Labor and the Department of Homeland Security released 150 pages of complicated new regulations for the H-2B program. The program may seem complex, but Fisher Phillips will provide a step-by-step explanation so you can find out if this is right for you.

At the seminar, you will learn:
1) The process for filing the application including timing and requirements with the Citizenship and Immigration Services and Department of Labor.
2) How to source candidates and obligations to them.
3) How to determine if this is the right program for you.
4) How to effectively implement this program for your business.

Speaker will be Davis Bae, Seattle Regional Managing Partner and National immigration Practice Group Co-chair. Join us at 10 a.m., Jan. 25.
