DOL proposes revisions to forms associated with H-2A temporary agricultural employment-based visa program

  1. Date Announced

    Oct. 25, 2018

    The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the DOL requests comment on revisions to forms associated with the H-2A temporary agricultural employment-based visa program, which includes Form ETA-9142A, ETA 790/ETA 790A, related appendices, and applicable instructions. Among other things, DOL is proposing to replace the existing Form ETA-790 with a new Form ETA-790/790A, H-2A Agricultural Clearance Order, which will be attached to Form ETA-9142A to eliminate redundant data collection and promote a more efficient means for employers to file the required job order with the ETA and State Workforce Agency (SWA) serving the area of intended employment. DOL is also proposing to eliminate the issuance of the paper-based labor certification decisions by creating a one-page Form ETA-9142A, Final Determination: H-2A Temporary Labor Certification Approval, which would be issued electronically to employers granted temporary labor certification by DOL. [ID #922]
