Judge grants injunction on H-2B program rule

Industry News

The ruling by a Florida court applies across the country.

| April 27, 2012

A Florida judge has granted a temporary injunction preventing the Department of Labor from implementing the H-2B program rule. Even though the ruling was issued in Florida, it applies nationwide, said Tom Delaney, PLANET's director of government affairs. Congress has blocked the wage rule until Sept. 30.

“We do expect the Department of Justice to appeal the decision, but any legal challenge will take a quite a while to play itself out and we are well positioned to address any further legal challenge,” Delaney said.

PLANET and other organizations initiated lawsuits against the H-2B program rule in the Northern District of Florida.

“PLANET members should take great pride in the fact that Judge Rogers relied extensively on Sabeena Hickman’s sworn statement regarding the harm DOL’s H-2B changes will cause to PLANET members,” said Richard Lehr, PLANET’s attorney.
