The Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) announced the group of 493 H-2B applications covering 12,098 worker positions with the start date of work of October 1, 2019, randomly selected for assignment.

OFLC said it successfully completed the randomization process on July 8, 2019, and assigned to analysts all of the H-2B applications placed in Assignment Group A for issuance of notices of deficiency or acceptance. Because the total number of H-2B applications contained an insufficient number of worker positions to reach the first semiannual visa allotment (33,000), no other assignment groups were created. OFLC provided written notice to each employer and, where applicable, the employer’s authorized attorney or agent.
