The Department of Labor Publishes a Request for Information Inviting Interested Parties to Provide Information on Sources of Data and Methodologies for Determining Prevailing Wage Levels in the H-1B, H-1B1, E-3, and PERM Programs

The Department of Labor (Department) is seeking information on the best available sources of data and methodologies that can be used in computing different levels of wages based on the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) wage survey administered by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), commensurate with experience, education, and level of supervision for a specific occupation and geographic area. The information received in response to this Request for Information (RFI) will inform and be considered by the Department as it reviews the Final RuleStrengthening Wage Protections for the Temporary and Permanent Employment of Certain Aliens in the United States, which may result in the development of a future notice of proposed rulemaking to revise the computation of prevailing wage levels in a manner that more effectively ensures the employment of certain immigrant and nonimmigrant workers does not adversely affect the wages of U.S. workers similarly employed.

The Department invites the submissions of comments, information, data, and supporting materials based on the questions provided in the RFI for a period of 60 days. All comments must be received on or before June 1, 2021.
