DOL Proposes Further Delay of Final Rule on Computation of Prevailing Wage Levels
DOL Proposes Further Delay of Final Rule on Computation of Prevailing Wage Levels

The Department of Labor (Department) issued a Federal Register notice proposing to further delay the effective date of the Final RuleStrengthening Wage Protections for the Temporary and Permanent Employment of Certain Aliens in the United States, for a period of eighteen months or until November 14, 2022. The Department has also proposed corresponding delays to the rule’s transition dates. 

The rule would have changed how DOL's National Prevailing Wage Center (NPWC) applies the four wage-level system to generate prevailing wage determinations when Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) data is used as the wage data source, using a percentile calculation instead of a mean calculation.
