Trump Administration Measures to Restrict Work Visas Thrown Out

The Department of Labor Called Out for Not Following Due Procedures

The Trump Administration’s restrictive measures on H-1B visas, through the imposition of punitive salary requirements, were thrown out by a federal district judge in California. The Administration’s disdain for and lack of adherence to following regulatory process, including providing for a period for public comments, were the reasons for a decision in favor of the plaintiffs, who were seeking injunctive relief from the October 1, 2020 Department of Labor (DOL) measures.

It is difficult to foresee what the Trump Administration will do next – accept the judgement and remove the onerous DOL measures or run out the clock remaining of this administration by throwing up more roadblocks.
