"BALCA Labor Certification Decision: Documentation Not Submitted With Application Cannot be Considered "
A recent decision by the Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals reminds us
of the need for all documentation related to immigration certification and
subsequent appeals be submitted in a complete and timely fashion.
The company in question saw its 2007 Permanent Employment Certification for a software engineer denied on the grounds its online job posting did not publicize the accurate
prevailing wage determination (PWD). It then had an appeal denied, in part,
because the certifying officer would not consider an online newspaper ad it
had not included in the filing audit.
