The H-1B Required Wage
Temple must pay H-1B employees the H-1B Required Wage - this is the higher of both the Prevailing Wage as determined by the US Department of Labor and the Actual Wage.
The actual wage is the "wage rate paid by the employer to all other individuals with experience and qualifications similar to those of the H-1B nonimmigrant, for the specific employment in question." The "actual wage" for LCA purposes is not an average of the wage rates an employer pays to all workers employed in the occupation, but rather a listing of wages paid, usually tending to form a wage range. The employer's wage rate placed in section F of the LCA must be consistent with the employer's actual wage rate determination, and be equal to or exceed the prevailing wage rate.
ISSS cannot begin the H-1B Application Process without an accurately-completed Actual Wage Worksheet. HR must complete all Actual Wage Worksheets for HR-hired positions. Departmental Administrators should complete this form for Faculty and Postdoctoral Fellow Research Associate positions.
