The last year has seen a great deal of upheaval in the context of prevailing wages, impacting both nonimmigrant and immigrant cases. Given the uncertainty of the past and DOL’s delay rather than withdrawal of the new final rule on prevailing wages, it is more important than ever for immigration practitioners to understand the benefits and challenges of using alternate wage surveys in support of those cases. Our panel of experts will provide an in-depth guide to the fundamentals of alternate wage surveys, then offer insight into when and how to use this tool.

Featured Topics

  • Understanding DOL’s Guidelines on What Constitutes an Acceptable Alternate Wage Survey
  • How to Obtain a Survey that Matches the Position and the Documentation That Is Required
  • What Information Is Needed to Accurately Complete LCAs, 9141, and 9089 Forms When Relying on an Alternate Wage Survey?
  • What to Do When the DOL Doesn’t Accept Your Survey: Does It Make Sense to Pursue a Request for Reconsideration?
