“Advanced Immigration Issues for Technology Companies”
Roger Tsai (bio), Attorney, Holland & Hart LLP, will address how employers seeking to sponsor immigrant workers for permanent residency must undergo a good faith recruitment process to search for U.S. workers, often referred to as the PERM Labor Certification process. Since the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) last amended the PERM regulations in 2007, there have been significant and substantive changes in how DOL adjudicates PERM applications. DOL’s standards of what documentation and types of recruitment are acceptable have become more restrictive, audits routinely request attestations relating to payment of labor certification costs, and DOL has begun questioning whether certain alternative requirements are substantially equivalent, among other issues. Currently the Dept. of Labor audits approximately 30% of all PERM submissions and, ultimately, half of those cases are denied. This seminar will help human resource professionals to develop best practices for job descriptions, to plan a successful recruitment program, and to learn about the newest DOL adjudication trends.
