OFLC Announces New Form ETA-9141, Application for Prevailing Wage Determination, for Use Beginning May 3, 2021
The Office of Management and Budget approved the Office of Foreign Labor Certification’s (OFLC) revisions to the Form ETA-9141, corresponding appendix, and instructions. The revisions will better align information collection requirements with the Department’s regulations, provide greater clarity to employers on regulatory requirements, and standardize and streamline information collection to reduce employer time preparing applications. They will also promote greater efficiency and transparency in OFLC’s review and issuance of prevailing wage determinations. This new form must be used for all new prevailing wage applications beginning May 3, 2021.
