B. Employees Holding H-2A and H-2B Visas

Commenters, generally representing employers in the agricultural industry, requested that holders of H-2A and H-2B visas be exempted from the definition of employee for purposes of section 4980H Download video youtube online. The commenters suggested that such employees are generally seasonal workers, but that the exemption for certain seasonal workers for purposes of the definition of an applicable large employer, which excludes only those seasonal workers employed for a period of no more than 120 days, does not adequately address these workers because many of these individuals work more than 120 days due to serial growing seasons l├╝gendetektor kostenlos herunterladen. However, the statutory provisions related to seasonal workers are explicit that seasonal workers are employees and that seasonal workers may be disregarded for purposes of the determination of whether an employer is an applicable large employer only if the seasonal workers cause the employer to exceed 50 full-time employees for a period of no more than 120 days flashplayer herunterladen. Furthermore, no justification was provided for exempting holders of H-2B visas, which cover non-agricultural workers. For these reasons, the final regulations do not adopt the suggestion that holders of H-2A and H-2B visas be generally exempted from the definition of employee for purposes of section 4980H windows 8 for free.

The final regulations also do not adopt a special rule with respect to these workers’ status as seasonal employees. The definition of seasonal employee is different from the definition of seasonal worker, and is relevant to the determination of a worker’s status as a full-time employee for reasons other than the entity’s determination of status as an applicable large employer gratis downloaden zoom. In applying the definition of seasonal employee, whether the employee holds any particular visa is not relevant. See section VII.C.8 of this preamble for a discussion of the definition of a seasonal employee microsoft word mac for free.
