Dept. of Labor Suspends Issuance of Prevailing Wage Determinations

August 17, 2011

Due a recent decision issued by a Court in Pennsylvania with regard to H-2B prevailing wage determinations, the U.S. Department of Labor is required to re-issue up to 4,000 H-2B prevailing wage determinations.  As a result, the Dept. of Labor has announced that it will currently not issue any new prevailing wage determinations (PERM, H-1B, or H-2B) until the re-issuance of all 4,000 cases is complete.  It is unclear as to how long the current hold will last.  Dept. of Labor is expected to provide an update as early as next week.  More information will be posted as it becomes available.
