As you may be aware, the National Prevailing Wage Center (NPWC) of the US Department of Labor is subject to a court order to provide redeterminations on H2B prevailing wages, and this has created a logjam in their processing of all PERM prevailing wage determination requests. We were not sure to what extent the delay would be, but have now learned from the NPWC that it “anticipates being able to issue all of these 4000 supplemental wage determinations before October 1, to do so before August 31 is physically and operationally impossible.”

This seems to imply that they will not issue a response to our prevailing wage determination request until at least October 1st.
