Editor's Comments of the Day
Changes were made to the H-1B program in October 1998 by the American Competitiveness and Workforce Improvement Act ("ACWIA"). On January 5, 1999, the Department of Labor published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking ("NPRM") to obtain public input to assist in the development of regulations to implement ACWIA and regulations the Department had promulgated in 1994, but which were found to be in violation of the Administrative Procedures Act. Ninety-two comments were received in response to the NPRM. After almost two years the Department has issued its interim final rule regarding temporary employment of aliens including the additional attestation elements for H-1B dependent employers and willful violators. Attorney Greg Siskind provides a summary of the regulations including information on the new LCA form, how to determine whether an employer is H-1B dependent, which employees are exempt from the new ACWIA rules, establishing that no US workers have been displaced, the "no benching" rule, and how to treat attorneys' fees when calculating the prevailing wage.
