December 1, 2020– A Northern District of California Judge in Chamber of Commerce, et al. v. DHS et al. set aside the recent prevailing wage increase by DHS and DOL which significantly impacted H-1B and employment-based green card beneficiaries.
The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California set aside the DHS interim final rule, Strengthening the H-1B Nonimmigrant Visa Classification Program, and the DOL interim final rule, Strengthening Wage Protections for the Temporary and Permanent Employment of Certain Aliens in the United States.
At this time, we continue to monitor the situation and the impact that it will have on H-1B and employment-based green card beneficiaries.
