Bloggings on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration

by Chris Musillo

PWD Update

 
The Prevailing Wage Determination (PWD) usually is the first step in the processing of an employment-based green card. This is a necessary beginning step for most occupations, including IT and healthcare occupations. The PWD is filed with the US Department of Labor (DOL).

In July, the DOL ceased processing PWDs as the direct result of a lawsuit affecting their H-2B applications. As a result of that lawsuit the entire PERM and Schedule A green card system has been disrupted.

Until the DOL re-commences the processing of PWDs, PERM and Schedule A green card cases may be delayed. It does appear that the resolution is forthcoming. There are reports that the first PWDs in several weeks have been received by the immigration community. If you have any questions on this, please do not hesitate to contact Musillo Unkenholt.
