On August 18, 2017, Rosanna Fox, shareholder in the Immigration & Compliance Practice, spoke on a panel at the 2017 AILA PERM/H-2B Practice Conference, hosted by the American Immigration Lawyers Association, in Seattle, WA. The discussion was entitled “Prevailing Wage Issues: Being Proactive Pays Off!” In most PERM cases, obtaining the prevailing wage is the initial step in the process and must be done correctly the first time due to ever-increasing processing times. The speakers provided insight on how OFLC has been handling prevailing wage requests based on stakeholder meetings. They also addressed how to use current guidance to minimize uncertainty, and how to be proactive to avoid RFIs and other processing delays. For more information click here.
