How do I track my pwd?

Answered by Edward Huber

Tracking your Prevailing Wage Determination (PWD) can be done through the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) system, which is operated by the US Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office for Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC). Here is a detailed guide on how to track your PWD:

1. Access the FLAG system: Visit the FLAG website ( and log in to your account. If you don’t have an account, you will need to create one.

2. Navigate to the PWD section: Once you are logged in, you will see a dashboard with various options. Look for the section related to PWD. It may be labeled as “Prevailing Wage Determination” or something similar.

3. Locate your PWD application: In the PWD section, you should be able to see a list of your PWD applications. Find the specific PWD application you want to track. The applications are usually listed by their case numbers or other identifying information.

4. Check the application status: Click on the PWD application you want to track, and it will open a detailed view of that application. Here, you should be able to see the current status of your PWD. The status might be “In Process,” “Pending,” “Certified,” “Denied,” or any other relevant status.

5. Review processing times: FLAG also provides information on the processing times for PWD applications. It usually shows the average processing time based on recent cases. You can compare the status of your application with the average processing time to get an idea of where your application stands.

6. Receive notifications: FLAG also has a notification system that will send you updates regarding your PWD application. You can choose to receive notifications via email or through the FLAG dashboard. These notifications will inform you about any changes in the status of your application or if any action is required from your end.

7. Contact the OFLC: If you have any specific concerns or questions about your PWD application, it’s advisable to contact the OFLC directly. They can provide you with more detailed information or address any issues you may have.

It’s important to note that processing times for PWD applications can vary depending on various factors such as the workload of the OFLC, the complexity of the application, and other external factors. It’s always recommended to regularly check the status of your application and stay updated on any changes or notifications.

Remember, each case is unique, and personal experiences may vary. It’s always best to follow the official guidelines and procedures provided by the DOL’s OFLC to ensure accurate and up-to-date information about your PWD tracking.
