NewsFlash! Prevailing Wage Determinations Issued

The Murthy Law Firm has started to receive Prevailing Wage Determinations (PWDs) from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) as of August 24, 2011. This is newsworthy, as the DOL had ceased processing such requests in July, as explained in our NewsBrief, DOL Not Issuing Prevailing Wages: PERM Delays (15.Aug.2011).

As of this writing, the DOL has not issued any announcement regarding resumption of action on PWD requests. Thus, it is too early to know if the DOL is returning to business as usual with regard to PWD requests. The PWDs we have received were requested in early June 2011. Many additional PWD requests continue to await action. We will keep MurthyDotCom and MurthyBulletin readers up to date with any further developments.
