As of Jan. 21, 2010, all requests by employers for prevailing wage determinations must be submitted electronically using the immigration certification system (“the iCERT System”) set up by the National Prevailing Wage and Helpdesk Center (the “NPWHC”) of the Department of Labor (“DOL”).

Prevailing wage determinations (“PWDs”) set the wages that must be paid to non-union workers who are employed in jobs in the United States by U.S. employers, and they are an essential part of any H-1B visa application or permanent labor certification (PERM) filed by a U.S. employer on behalf of a foreign national employee.
