Impact of Expected Rollback of H-4 Work Rule Explained

In a previous post, MeBIC described the Administration’s stated plan to rescind a regulation in June 2018 that enables certain spouses of H-1B visa holders, who have H-4 visas, to get work authorization.  This op-ed in the New York Times explains in personal terms the toll that this move would take on H-4 spouses, which in turn will diminish U.S. companies’ ability to compete for global talent.

There will be a required notice and comment period when the public can register opposition to this rule change.  Maine businesses that would like more information or assistance in submitting comments should contact MeBIC.
