DOL releases guidance on H-1B notice by electronic posting

15 Mar 19

UNITED STATES

The Department of Labor (DOL) has posted guidance for employers on compliance with H-1B notice requirements by electronic posting, including the steps H-1B petitioners must follow when they place H-1B employees at third-party worksites.

The four-page bulletin says that H-1B petitioners must make the notice available to affected U.S. workers at third-party sites, including those who are not employed by the petitioner. Petitioners must also provide information about the location of the electronic posting. “If the H-1B petitioner informs the affected workers at the third-party site of the location of the electronic notice for their worksite, and the affected workers are able to determine which electronic notice applies to their worksite, the H-1B petitioner has complied with notice requirements,” the bulletin says.

BAL is continuing to review the guidance and will provide employers with additional analysis as necessary.
