Recruitment by Employer for LC


     In order to obtain labor certification ("LC"), which is often needed to petition a foreign worker for residency, the employer must conduct minimum recruitment.   If the position is a professional one, the employer must post ads in two Sunday editions of a newspaper of general circulation as well as place the job offer in a state-wide job bank.
     The employer must also place the ad using three of the following ten methods:  employee referral program, employer's web site, job web site, radio/TV ads, on-campus recruiting, job fairs, trade/professional organizations, private employment firms, campus placement offices, and local/ethnic newspapers.
     The employer can petition for the foreigner only if she does not find a minimally-qualified U.S. worker through these recruitment methods.  If the Dept. of Labor doubts the authenticity of the recruitment efforts, it will conduct an audit before approving the LC. 
     Audit.  Oooh, that's a scary word.  More on that tomorrow.
