Court Stops Higher Immigration Wages and H-1B Changes
The US District Court has set aside the Department of Labor interim rule that increased prevailing wages in October. DOL will make changes to its prevailing wage database in the next couple of days to reflect the lower wage requirements. The decision also prevents the scheduled December 8 implementation of H-1B regulatory changes to the "specialty occupation" definition and the one-year limit for third-party placements. We will continue to monitor potential appeals to this decision and provide updates.
