Temporary Workers Under § 301 of the Immigration Reform and Control Act

Headnotes: 

“Temporary” work under § 301 of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which permits aliens to enter the United States temporarily to perform “temporary” services or labor, refers to any job where the employer’s need for the employee is temporary. The nature of the underlying job and, in particular, whether the underlying job itself can be described as permanent or temporary, is irrelevant.
