PERM module in the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG):
Section E: Job Opportunity and Wage Information
- If your linked Prevailing Wage Determination (PWD) includes two wages - 1) the wage in Section G.4 of the PWD based on the minimum requirements, and 2) the wage in Section G.5 of the PWD based on the alternative requirements, the system will display the higher of the two wages. Filers will need to enter an offered wage that is equal to or higher than the prevailing wage displayed.
- Filers can now enter an amount (hourly, weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or yearly) that can be compared to the prevailing wage. For example, if the prevailing wage is 15,000/year, the filer can enter monthly wages ($1,250/month) in the Offered Wage fields. The system will take the monthly wage entered, multiply by 12 months, and compare the calculated wage to the prevailing wage. The system will also perform similar calculations if filer enters a weekly, bi-weekly, or yearly wage in the Offered Wage fields.
