The H-2b program allows companies to hire foreign
workers to come temporarily to the United States and
perform temporary nonagricultural services or labor on a
one-time, seasonal, peakload or intermittent basis. The
Secretary of Homeland Security consults with appropriate
agencies before admitting H-2B non-immigrants.
Homeland Security regulations require The H-2B visa
classification requires the United States that, except for
Guam, the petitioning employer first apply for a
temporary labor certification from the United States
Secretary of Labor indicating that: (1) there are not
sufficient U.S. workers who are capable of performing the
petition for H-2B classification and at the place where the
foreign worker is to perform the work; and (2) the
employment of the foreign worker will not adversely affect
the wages and working conditions of similarly employed
U.S. in, first out basis.

issues affecting thegreen industry that businesses should take action on (including
sample letters to aid you in contacting your legislators.

We encourage you, as a steward of the environment and the green industry, to get
involved!  To the right is the contact information for our Ohio U.S. Senator's offices and
U.S. Representative's offices.  If you do not know who your U.S. Representative is, click on
the "Legislative Action Center"  link below, and scroll down the page towards the bottom
to enter your zip code to find your legislators.

LEGISLATIVE ACTION CENTER
Employers seeking to employ temporary H-2B workers must apply for Temporary
Employment Certification. An employer may submit a request for multiple unnamed
foreign workers as long as each worker is to perform the same services or labor, on the
same terms and conditions, in the same occupation, in the same area of intended
employment during the same period of employment. Certification is issued to the
employer, not the worker, and is not transferable from one employer to another or from
one worker to another.
