As the end of June quickly approaches, PERM applicants should keep in mind if their Prevailing Wage Determination (PWD) expires on the 30th. In this instances, candidates must begin some portion of the PERM recruitment process before the June 30th deadline. Beginning July 1st, the data used for the prevailing wage resets, placing the validity of the position itself in jeopardy. But the good news is, as long as even one step in the PERM recruitment process begins prior to the prevailing wage’s expiration, the DOL will honor that wage for the entire advertising campaign. We talk about this—and more—in our blog posts Top 5 Things to Remember for a Successful PERM Advertising Campaign
and How an Expert Opinion Letter for PERM Could Potentially Prevent an Audit from the DOL
