Casey Rodgers of the federal district court in the Northern District of Florida extended the stay discussed in a March 18, 2015, blog post until May 15, 2015, thus allowing the Department of Labor (DOL) to continue accepting and processing H-2B prevailing wage and temporary labor certification applications.
