Issuance of Prevailing Wage Requests Resumed

The U.S. Department of Labor has resumed issuance of Prevailing Wage Determination (PWD) after a few weeks of suspension of the service.  PWD is required in all PERM foreign labor application cases and is also used in other non-immigrant visa petitions such as H-1Bs and H-2Bs.  Recently, the service was suspended by the Labor Department temporarily in order for the agency to meet the requirements of a federal court order to process thousands of H-2B PWDs.
