H-2B Wage Calculation Rule Delayed 60 Days

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration has announced a 60-day postponement of the revision of wage calculations for the H-2B visa program for temporary nonagricultural workers. This delay will allow various courts that are involved in litigation related to the implementation of the rule the chance to determine the best venue to find resolutions for claims, as well as ensure that the H-2B program can be administered without potentially conflicting court orders.

The effective date of the rule has been moved from September 30, 2011, to November 30, 2011. This change will be published in the Federal Register next week. A final rule was published on January 19, , that revised the wage methodology for the H-2B program.
