BALCA Holds Failure to Include CO’s Address on Notice Cause for Denial

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.
