ACTION: Final rule; delay of effective date. AGENCY: The Department of Labor (Department) is delaying the effective date of the Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-agricultural Employment H–2B Program (the Wage Rule) to October 1, 2012 in response to recently enacted legislation that prohibits any funds from being used to implement the Wage Rule for the remainder of fiscal year (FY) 2012. The Wage Rule revised the methodology by which we calculate the prevailing wages to be paid to H–2B workers and United States (U.S.) workers recruited in connection with a temporary labor SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 82115 certification for use in petitioning the Department of Homeland Security to employ a nonimmigrant worker in H–2B status.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Labor (Department) published the Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-agricultural Employment H–2B Program; Final Rule (the Wage Rule) on January 19, 2011, 76 FR 3452. The Wage Rule revised the methodology by which we calculate the prevailing wages to be paid to H–2B workers and United States (U.S.) workers recruited in connection with a temporary labor certification for use in petitioning the Department of Homeland Security to employ a nonimmigrant worker in H–2B status. The Department originally set the effective date of the Wage Rule for January 1, 2012. However, due to a court ruling that invalidated the January 1, 2012 effective date of the Wage Rule,1 we issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) on June 28, 2011, which proposed that the Wage Rule take effect 60 days from the date of publication of a final rule resulting from the NPRM. 76 FR 37686, June 28, 2011. After a period of public comment, we published a Final Rule on August 1, 2011, which set the new effective date for the Wage Rule of September 30, 2011 (the Effective Date Rule). Both the Wage Rule and the Effective Date Rule recently were challenged in two separate lawsuits 2 seeking to bar their implementation. In consideration 1 CATA v. Solis, Civil Docket No. 09–240, Doc.
