1. The Court is considering its ruling.
2. The Court is informed about DOL's failure to run the H-2B Program properly.
3. The Court is informed about the urgency DOL's actions has created.
Using a fake crisis as cover, DOL and DHS sprung two regulations governing the H-2B Program on the public in April. The agencies unlawfully deprived all of us of a chance to comment on the rules before the new H-2B regulations became law.
A group of H-2B employers and organizations sued DOL and DHS in the Northern District of Florida in Pensacola in June. The Court adopted a fast-paced schedule so that the case would be ready for decision by July 30th. The parties complied and the case awaits Court action.
The most recent action involves a filing informing the Court about DOL's recent loss in the 10th Circuit in the G.H. Daniels III & Assoc. case. Stung, DOL and DHS moved to strike the new filing. The H-2B community opposed DOL's and DHS' gambit. That motion is pending.
Our brief concluded by reminding the Court of the stakes:
We do not know when the Court will rule, but check back often so you will be one of the first to get the news.
