U.S. Department of Labor Announces Proposed Delay in Effective Date of Final Rule Affecting Wages for H-1B and PERM Workers

The Department of Labor issued a Federal Register notice proposing a 60-day delay of the effective date of the Final RuleStrengthening Wage Protections for the Temporary and Permanent Employment of Certain Aliens in the United States from March 15, 2021 until May 14, 2021. On January 20, 2021, Ronald A. Klain, Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff, issued a memorandum titled “Regulatory Freeze Pending Review” that directed federal agencies to consider postponing the effective date of any rules published in the Federal Register but not yet taken effect to allow the new administration to review “any questions of fact, law, and policy” raised by the rule. ETA seeks comment on the proposed delay, including the proposed delay’s impact on any legal, factual, or policy issues raised by the underlying rule and whether further review of those issues warrants such a delay.
