The Department of Labor has released an FAQ discussing how an employer can demonstrate it notified and considered laid-off U.S. workers for job openings during the PERM Labor Certification Process. The DOL said, “An employer must maintain documentation showing that it has met its notice and consideration requirements, including … contemporaneous documents that show when and how notice and consideration was given. In addition, an employer must obtain and maintain written documentation that a laid-off worker has declined to receive notices, requested discontinuation of the notices, or refused to give or update contact information.”
