BALCA Affirms Denial Where Employer Failed to Include its Name on the Notice of Filin

Rate this Entry
The Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (“BALCA”) recently considered whether the failure to include the name of the employer on a notice of filing is fatal to a PERM application. In Matter of G.O.T. Supply, Inc., the employer submitted an Application for Permanent Employment Certification for the position of “Welder-Fitter.” The case was selected for audit and the Certifying Officer (“CO”) denied the case on the basis that the employer failed to include its name in the notice of filing. In response, the employer argued that any potential employee would be able to identify the name of the employer because the notice of filing listed the employer’s President’s name and was posted at the employer’s premises. Alternatively, the employer argued that the failure to include the employer’s name in the notice of filing was a harmless error. In reviewing the case, BALCA reiterated that the federal regulations specify that the notice of filing must contain the name of the employer. It also stated that the notice of filing is “not a mere technicality, but is an implementation of a statutory notice requirement designed to assist interested persons in providing relevant information to the CO about an employer’s certification application,” and, thus, is not “to be lightly dismissed under a harmless error finding.” BALCA determined that in failing to provide the employer’s name, an individual who hoped to provide information to the CO about the application would be thwarted due to their inability to provide the name of the employer. Consequently, the denial was upheld. In drafting notice of filings, it is important that employers include all of the information specified in the advertisement content requirements that have been specified for the PERM program.
