What on Earth Is the Wage? The State of Play on Prevailing Wages
August 26, 2021
2:00 PM (ET)
After litigation and a change in administrations, DOL has delayed implementation of the proposed prevailing wage rule to phase in a new method of wage calculations. However, in July 2021, DOL will publish new annual Occupational Employment and Wage Statistics (OEWS) wage data, including for select new 2018 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes. The experts on this seminar will discuss the current state of play regarding prevailing wages, SOCs and O*NET, and the resulting interplay with the revised Form 9141 Application for Prevailing Wage Determination released in May 2021.
- Update on Strengthening Wage Protections for the Temporary and Permanent Employment of Certain Aliens in the United States

- Proactive 9141 Strategies for an Ever-Mobile Workforce and Virtual Employers
- Navigating New 2018 SOCs in O*NET
- Using Less Common SOC Occupations in O*NET
- Tips on Managers, “All Other,” and Emerging Occupations
