President Trump signed an executive order on “Aligning Federal Contracting and Hiring Practices With the Interests of American Workers,” directing the heads of federal agencies to review federal contracts; assess any negative impact of contractors’ use of temporary foreign labor or offshoring of work on U.S. workers; and to recommend corrective action, if necessary.
The executive order also directs the Secretaries of Labor and Homeland Security to take action, within 45 days, “to protect United States workers from any adverse effects on wages and working conditions caused by the employment of H-1B visa holders at job sites (including third-party job sites), including measures to ensure that all employers of H-1B visa holders, including secondary employers, adhere to the requirements of section 212(n)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (8 U.S.C. 1182(n)(1)).” (85 FR 47879, 8/6/20)
