Prevailing Wage Notes 7/20/2010

• New OES wage survey data was released on July 1, 2010.

• The wage data used in making the determination is the data available at the time of issuance rather than at the time of filing.

• 89% of PWD requests are now submitted electronically through iCert.

• Processing time is currently less than 50 days.

• DOL requests that a paper copy of a submission not be sent in after a request has been made via iCert.

• PWDs are final unless there is a mistake made by DOL.

• New FAQ’s concerning the prevailing wage process are expected to be published soon.

• The most common error in completing the Form 9141 is at part D.c.4 request for “COUNTY”, not “COUNTRY”. If this question is completed incorrectly, the request will be denied.

• PWD redeterminations are processed in FIFO order.

• DOL recommends utilizing the iCert function for redeterminations.

• Redetermination would be appropriate if the attorney disagrees with the wage level assigned.

• If DOL has made a clear typographical or technical error in a PWD, send a request for correction to

• If there is a technical systems or computer‐related problem, contact

• DOL stated that there should no longer be an issue related to clinical faculty obtaining ACWIA wages. If you want an ACWIA wage, then so note clearly in the job description section (D.a.6 ) of Form 9141, set apart by asterisks.

• If you have an issue with DOL determining that an employer is ACWIA eligible, and USCIS has already determined that the employer is cap exempt, let DOL know as that can be persuasive, but not determinative.

• If you would like to cancel a request for redetermination, send an email requesting withdrawal.

• DOL indicated that where the application type on Form 9141 is indicated as H-1B or PERM, the form can be used interchangeably for a PERM application or an LCA.

• There is no “expedite” option for PWD requests.

• DOL requests that when a private survey will be used in a PWD, that Form 9141 be submitted via iCert and the hard copy survey data be submitted via mail referencing the Form 9141 iCert tracking number. Do not submit the hard copy with another Form 9141. Currently submission of the private survey data cannot be made electronically via email transmission of a PDF.

I've had the pleasure of conducting business with this law firm for the last 10 years. They have been nothing but the best for every aspect of immigration need I had. From F1 all the way to citizenship. They're probably the most affordable, knowledgeable, and most efficient immigration law firm out there. Plus, they always provide responses to questions in a very timely manner. Trust me, other immigration law firms will cost you an arm and a leg for the same or less of a service compared to this law firm. Give them a call, check out their website. You will not regret it.

Because of John and his team my wife and I were able to travel back to the states, get married and have a Green Card without any headaches. John’s efforts were amazing and it shows because my wife and I didn’t have to go to the Green card interview. We had a strong enough case to receive the Green card in the mail. If you’re seeking a Lawyer that will be impartial, he’s your guy.

Marc and John Dorer worked on our case to file for AOS after our L1A was approved.Marc and John are professionals and extremely reasonable-priced. The reason they are able to cut the price is because they don't spend time consulting you or guiding you and will never get on call.All communications are email only, so if you know precisely what you want they will do all the paper-work, follow the trail and get the job done. If you are confused and need advice and consulting, they may not be the right lawyers.But since we were doing our AOS, it worked out perfectly well and they did their job extremely professionally.Would recommend them every time to get the work done.

At first I thought I could have very well gone through the green card application process on my own and saved all lawyer fees. Its funny how some lawyers can charge in excess of 2K for this. However at Taylor and Associates the price seemed more reasonable and felt it made sense to go with one at that price. There were some doubts that arose in our mind which they cleared in a timely manner and seemed very knowledgeable in this area. Its for moments like these when having a professional around helps. While we can get busy with our lives and with laws constantly changing, I would definitely recommend them - a small price to pay for peace of mind.
