The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) may soon release updated information that is important to those undergoing the labor certification process, whether as petitioning employers or as foreign national beneficiaries. We at the Chugh Firm have noticed that the DOL is using audit procedures in an increasing number of PERM labor certifications. Receiving an audit from the DOL is stressful to both the employer and employee. We hope the DOL will shortly acknowledge and confirm an increase in audits over the past few months. We, at The Chugh Firm, will continue to monitor the situation and keep you updated. If you every have any questions or concerns, please contact one of our friendly staff members in the Immigration department.
