DOL Announces Efforts Aimed at Protecting American Workers from H-1B Program Discrimination

DOL announced that it plans to take certain actions in an effort to ensure that American workers are not discriminated against by the H-1B program, including "rigorously using" existing authority to initiate investigations of H-1B program violators, considering changes to the Labor Condition Application for future application cycles, and continuing stakeholder engagement on how the program might be improved to provide greater protections for U.S. workers.
