BALCA Determines Presumption of Audit Notification Delivery by the DOL is Invalid

Rate this Entry
The Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (“BALCA”) recently considered whether the Department of Labor (“DOL”) is entitled to a presumption that its audit notification letters are delivered to employers and their agents. In Matter of DGN Technologies, Inc., the employer submitted a labor certification case for the position of “Programmer Analyst.” The case was selected for audit and the DOL asserted that it sent an audit notification letter to the employer’s agent. No response was ever received from the employer or its agent. Consequently, the case was denied. The employer requested reconsideration on the basis that it never received the audit notification letter. The denial was upheld by the Certifying Officer (“CO”) on the basis that the audit notification letter was sent to the address listed by the employer on its Form 9089. The case was forwarded to BALCA. BALCA determined that a lengthy case history established that the CO was “not entitled to a presumption of delivery of mail sent by the National Processing Center in the absence of proof of its internal mailing procedures,” and overturned the denial. While it is critical that employers routinely check their mail for correspondence from government agencies, this case does provide support for the idea that the DOL may not automatically deny a case when the employer failed to respond to a request due to the fact that it never received the request in the mail.
