DOL/ETA RIN: 1205-AB69 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Wage Methodology for the Temporary Nonagricultural Employment H-2B Program, Part 2 
Abstract: In an interim final rule (IFR) published in April, 2013, DHS and DOL amended their regulations governing the methodology by which DOL calculates the prevailing wages to be paid to H-2B workers and U.S. workers recruited in connected with the application for employment certification of nonimmigrant workers in temporary or seasonal non-agricultural employment. That prevailing wage is then used by employers in petitioning the DHS to allow nonimmigrant workers to enter the U.S. in H-2B status. DOL and DHS jointly issued this rule in response to the court's order in Comite de Apoyo a los Trabajadores Agricolas v. Solis, which vacated a provision of DOL's prevailing wage rate regulation, and to ensure that the rule is in effect nationwide in light of other outstanding litigation. The IFR requested comments from the public on a variety of regulatory and policy issues, and the final rule will consider the public's input and make revisions to the regulations as warranted.
