H2B Visa – Determining the Prevailing Wage Rate


There is a prevailing wage requirement for all H-1B, H-2B and Permanent Labor Certification cases. Prevailing Wage is defined as the hourly wage, usual benefits and overtime, paid in the largest city in each county, to the majority of workers, laborers, and mechanics. Prevailing wages are established, by the Department of Labor (DOL) and Industries, for each trade and occupation employed in the performance of public work. The law requires that an employer pay the higher of their actual wage or the prevailing wage in the area for the offered position. Obtaining a prevailing wage determination is no longer the easy process as it was in the past. Determining the prevailing wage would include identifying a wage survey that fits your job offered and noting the wage requirements. Read out the complete article to find out how the Department of Labor determines the Prevailing Wage Rate.
