District Court Orders DOL to Reissue Prevailing Wage Determinations

A federal judge granted the plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment against Department of Labor’s (DOL) interim final rule issued on October 8, 2020 that changed the prevailing wage rates. The judge stated that, “DOL did not sufficiently justify its prediction that advance notice-and-comment procedures would have been contrary to the public interest” and ordered DOL to reissue prevailing wage determinations that were issued under the rule.
