Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-Agricultural Employment H-2B Program; Delay of Effective Date
Document Number: 2013-07431
Type: Rule
Date: 2013-03-29
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
The Department of Labor is delaying the effective date of the Wage Methodology for the Temporary Non-agricultural Employment H-2B Program final rule (the Wage Rule), in order to address legislation that prohibits any funds from being used to implement the Wage Rule for the remainder 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.
