In this webinar series, presenters will navigate the complex maze of the H-2B non-agriculture and H-2A agricultural visa programs to provide an overview of visa requirements, procedures, compliance and employer obligations. Foreign labor options to fill permanent labor needs at farms and seasonal businesses will also be discussed.
