“FEWA members have the unique benefit of joining one association to file the H-2B paperwork, process workers abroad, advocate in DC, educate on compliance, and have access to legal resources,” explained Arnulfo Hinojosa, Vice President of FEWA. We take pride in working with respectable employers that are willing and capable of following the rules such as NALP members.
NALP’s new partnership with FEWA will give members access to FEWA’s expertise. Members will also have access to exclusive content, including webinars and other resources, to help program users stay compliant with the programs’ complex rules and regulations.
