As discussed in our firm's Immigration Update dated July 31, 2011, the DOL has revised how prevailing wages will be determined in the H-2B Program. Initially, the DOL was going to make the new wage methodology effective for both existing positions and new positions on October 1, 2011. However, a few days prior to the effective date, the DOL issued another rule delaying the effective date due to pending litigation. The DOL has now delayed the effective date of the new wage methodology to November 30, 2011.
