DOL Proposes Revisions to ETA-9141

OFLC, Feb. 13, 2019

The Department of Labor (the Department) published a 60-day notice in the Federal Register informing the public of proposed revisions to Form ETA-9141, Application for Prevailing Wage Determination, for the purpose of requesting public comments. The objectives of the Form ETA-9141 revisions are to better align information collection requirements with the Department's current regulatory framework, streamline information collection across programs to reduce employer's time and burden in preparing applications, and promote greater efficiency and transparency in the Office of Foreign Labor Certification's (OFLC) review and issuance of prevailing wage determinations. Proposed changes to the form include addition of fields for the name and details of the attorney or agent filing the form on behalf of its employer client, formatted field for alternative requirements for the job opportunity instead of the current free-text field, and addition of an appendix to standardize the collection of requests for prevailing wage determinations for multiple worksites. Any written comments must be submitted in accordance with the Federal Register notice instructions. Copies of the 60 day notice, Supporting Statement, and the proposed forms and instructions are provided below:
