The Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration has announced the annual updated dollar amount per day ($15.46) that H-2A employers may charge workers (other than workers in herding or production of livestock on the range occupations) for providing meals. They also released the maximum ($59, with documentation of actual expenses) and minimum ($15.46) rate per day at which H-2A and H-2B workers must be reimbursed for travel-related subsistence expenses.

The notice includes a reminder of the continuing obligation of H-2A and H-2B employers to pay certain lodging and travel-related expenses that workers incur while traveling to and from H-2A and H-2B employment.
