AILA is seeking plaintiffs in an action challenging the new interim final rule on prevailing wages for H-1B, H-1B1, E-3 and PERM filings. This form seeks to identify employers, employees, and membership organizations that may be interested in serving as named plaintiffs in litigation to be filed on a very expedited basis.

Complete Data Collection Form



In October 2020, DHS issued the Strengthening the H-1B Nonimmigrant Visa Classification Program Interim Final Rule revising the definition of "Specialty Occupation" and DOL issued the Strengthening Wage Protections for the Temporary and Permanent Employment of Certain Aliens in the United States Interim Final Rule, amending the regulations governing permanent labor certifications and Labor Condition Applications to incorporate changes to the computation of prevailing wage levels. Together, these rules upend decades of requirements for the H-1B program.
