DOL Processing Slows

The processing and issuance of Prevailing Wage Determinations (PWD’s) by the DOL has slowed to over 4 months with the DOL still working to complete PWD’s filed in August. PWD’s are a necessary step in PERM and some other green card cases. Often, employers will not purse costly advertisements as part of the PERM Labor Market Test until a PWD has been issued. For several years, the DOL’s processing had been consistently 75-90 days and hopefully, the current processing time is but a mere aberration and not the new normal.
