May 13th, 2009

In Matter of Tekkote, 2008-PER-00218 (1/5/09), BALCA held that the certifying officer (CO) properly denied certification of a PERM labor certification application where the employer omitted CO’s address on the Notice of Filing. BALCA found that the¬†omission violated the purpose of the PERM statutes and law, which was to give an address where documentation relating to the PERM application could be sent.¬†
