Update on Prevailing Wage Determinations

August 26, 2011 Leave a comment

Although some attorneys have reported receiving prevailing wage determinations recently, in a meeting held last week, the Dept. of Labor confirmed that it is currently working on clearing the backlog in H-2B wage determinations which it is required to clear by September 30.  DOL stated that it is working on clearing the backlog by third week of September. Upon completion of H-2B wage determinations, DOL indicated that it will start working on H-1B and PERM prevailing wage determinations.  Thus, in reality, attorneys could start receiving prevailing wage determinations sometime in October.
