H-2A Temporary Worker Program
(Seasonal Agricultural Worker)
The H-2A program allows a foreign national entry into the U.S. for temporary or seasonal agricultural work. There are several requirements of the employer in regards to this visa. The H-2A temporary agricultural program establishes a means for agricultural employers who anticipate a shortage of domestic workers to bring non-immigrant foreign workers to the U.S. to perform agricultural labor or services of a temporary or seasonal nature. Currently in the United States there are over 50,000 temporary agricultural workers. And the prevailing wage laws, workers’ compensation and other standards cover all of these workers.
Manpower Management provides the following Labor Solutions under the H-2A Temporary Worker Program:
- Agricultural Workers and Harvest Labor
- Nursery and Greenhouse Workers
- Tractor/Combine operator, Forklift Operator
- Agricultural Truck Driver
The H-2A Program provides a solution to the current labor market shortage by enabling companies that qualify for the federal H-2A program to acquire legal seasonal non-immigrant labor to come and work for only those businesses on a legal work visa.
