Michigan’s Foreign Labor H-2A for Michigan Works! Staff (webcast)

The USDOL Foreign Labor Certification Program allows employers to hire nonimmigrant foreign workers as temporary or seasonal employees. 

The State of Michigan’s WDA Foreign Labor Certification Office (FLCO) assists with the processing of temporary labor certifications in two areas: H-2A Certification for Temporary Agricultural Workers and H-2B Certification for Temporary Non-Agricultural Workers. 

H-2A job orders require that staff in local Michigan Works! Offices assist job seekers and H-2A employers during this process. 

Attendees will learn the basics about handling H-2A job orders at the local level.

Topics of Discussion:
  • Overview of the H-2A Program
  • H-2As: step-by-step
  • H-2B job orders: how they differ from H-2A
