Success Story: PERM Labor Certification Approved After Auditing and Motion to Reconsider

On March 27, 2012, we received a courtesy email from the Department of Labor notifying us and our client about the approval to a PERM Labor Certification application we filed for a company located in Houston, Texas.  The approval ends our vehement fight with DOL for this matter.  Our client, needlessly to say, is ecstatic about the result.

 

This PERM application was initially filed on February 14, 2011 on behalf of a computer company for the position of Market Analyst.  While all the recruitment process was completed by our client in strict compliance with the regulations, the petition was selected by the DOL for auditing in March of 2011. 

 

On April 1, 2011, we filed a comprehensive and voluminous response to the audit notice of DOL.  Surprisingly, the DOL officer issued denial notice to this petition in early September of 2011.  Unconvinced by the denial, we decided to appeal this decision and as such we filed our Motion to Reconsider in Mid-September of 2011.  In our Motion brief, we pointed out the flaws in the denial and argued why the application should be approved.  Obviously, we were able to convince the DOL.  They finally agreed to change their position and approved the case.  

 

Since April and May of 2008, the Department of Labor has heightened the frequency of auditing labor certification cases.  As such, compliance with the DOL regulations in the preparation of the cases is a must.  Also, experience is extremely important as the process is highly technical and many aspects of the application must be clearly thought out before filing.  Whether you are an employer or an employee contemplating applying for PERM (labor certification), please contact us immediately.  Check out our web column and you will see the successes we have obtained for our clients.  Give us a call or send us an email.  The help you need is just a click away!
