The $518,000,000 Question

The $518,000,000 question is: Are employers entitled to a refund of money that DOL collected under the unlawful 2008 H-2B Final Rule?

Last year, a federal judge removed that DOL's 2008 H-2B Final Rule from books.  The judge also prohibited DOL from enforcing the rule in any way.

DOL collected $518,237,230.89 since FY 2010 from H-2B employers.  Why should DOL be allowed to keep this money - money that it never had a legal basis to demand?

The Hall Law Office is contemplating exploring this issue in detail.  If any employer would like to discuss the possibility of a refund or even a class action, please contact Wendel Hall at (202) 661-2173 or
