Public Description:  

H.R. 2849, the USA Jobs Protection Act, would implement reforms of the H-1B and L-1 visa programs aimed at preventing American high-tech workers from being displaced by foreign workers. The legislation would provide important protections for American workers, including prevailing wage and no-layoff provisions. It would also extend current no-layoff provisions for H-1B dependent employers to all H-1B employers.
