How This Impacts Mobility
The DOL rule in particular will have a negative impact on employers’ ability to access H-1B and potentially employment-based green card foreign talent in the United States unless the rule is stopped by litigation. This is likely the case because the Biden-Harris administration are likely to prioritize an unwinding of other immigration executive orders and rules put in place by the Trump administration such as the visa entry bans and asylum and refugee rules. This is why Worldwide ERC® is doing so much to address these rules with our advocacy.
Worldwide ERC®’s comment letter, signature on the additional multi-sector comment, and signature to the Chamber’s amicus brief are part of our public policy advocacy efforts on behalf of the workforce mobility industry and the talent they move. Worldwide ERC® will continue to keep members updated on these issues, and should any member have questions, please reach out to Vice President of Member Engagement and Public Policy Rebecca Peters, firstname.lastname@example.org.
