Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act with respect to a returning H-2B alien (temporary nonagricultural worker) who has already been counted toward the annual numerical limitation. Exempts such an alien from that limitation unless he or she leaves the United States for more than one year and has not been counted toward the limitation in any of the three years before his or her departure.
Sets forth H-2B employer requirements regarding: (1) petitions, (2) transportation costs, (3) displacement of U.S. workers, (4) wages, (5) housing, and (6) an incentive for an employer to report absconding H-2B workers.
