Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-Agricultural Employment H-2B Program; Delay of Effective Date
Document Number: 2012-24264
Type: Rule
Date: 2012-10-02
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The Department of Labor (Department) is delaying the effective date of the Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-agricultural Employment H-2B Program final rule, in response to recently enacted legislation that prohibits any funds from being used to implement the Wage Rule for the first 6 months of fiscal year (FY) 2013. The Wage Rule revised the methodology by which the Department calculates 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.
