    After putting an H2B worker into your workforce, are there any restrictions on duties or pay rate for that worker? If you get a great seasonal worker, train them, etc. Can you compensate them for that training and productivity? And, can you get them back next season if they are willing? or do you have to start the process all over again? Proving the entry level slot is unfillable is easy, but what about retention? If the position in question has a major learning curve and the H2B worker masters it, does the company have to advertise his position next season at the projected pay rate for the trained H2B worker that should be returning?

    Great questions:
    With regard to the duties, they are to do the work filed for. If filed with the DOL that the men are lawn cutters, then that is the work they are to do. You can not put them to work in a restaurant for example. Related duties are fine. They are to receive the approved wages but of course they can get more if they so deserve. The workers must return to their home country at the termination of the visa. The sponsoring company must refile for each year and you can get the same men back again. This is a huge advantage !
    Part of the filing procedure is the advertisement , we write the approved ad and help you every step with the papers and make it a "no brainer". Please call or email if you have any further questions.
