Guam law allows temp labor certification

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Local employers will now have the ability to temporarily meet increased manpower needs that are necessary for the impending military buildup.  Public Law 110-229 (The Consolidated Natural Resources Act of 2008) took effect on November 28, lifting the national cap on applications for non-immigrant visas. 

According to the Department of Labor, this means local employers can now file requests for temporary labor certification and authorization to import H-2b workers with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security throughout the year.  Prior to the enactment of the law, applications had to be filed prior to the October and April cap openings.

DOL officials say this exemption is critical to meet the needs of the impending military buildup.
