The American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) recently reached out to
the DOL's Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) with questions about
long PERM prevailing wage determination and PERM application filing
processing times.

These delays have been a problem for a while as both are taking 8+ months in
many cases.  In fact, a prevailing wage determination can take 11+ months in
some cases. This has resulted in PERM cases taking 20+ months from beginning
to end and individuals running out of H-1B or L-1 time.
