Proposed rules to modernize and increase protections under H-2B program

WASHINGTON — Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao has announced that the U.S. Department of Labor has proposed rules to modernize the application process and enhance worker protections under the H-2B temporary labor certification program in response to President Bush's Aug. 10, 2007 promise to review and update foreign worker program regulations.

"These proposed improvements will give the department additional tools to protect workers and remove duplicative bureaucracy," said Secretary of Labor Elaine L. Chao.
