Important changes are just around the corner! New Labor Certification rules take effect July 16, 2007. The most important changes affect people, time, and money.
1. People: Employers may no longer substitute Beneficiaries on an approved Labor Certification.
2. Time: Employers will only have 180 days from the approval of a Labor Certification to file the I-140, Application for Alien Worker.
3. Money: Employers must pay for all attorney fees, headhunting fees, recruiting fees, advertising costs, or other fees, and are barred from seeking any type of reimbursement for these costs by the employee. By law, the only costs that the employee may pay are the fees and costs relating to the I-140 and I-485 processing fees. Immigration Solutions advises Employers to revise contracts with Employees to reflect these changes, as well as to revise internal policies so that they remain in compliance at all times.
