The October 2021 settlement agreements reached by Facebook (now Meta) with both DOJ and DOL regarding the company’s PERM recruitment activities has clarified how the Immigrant and Employment Rights (IER) Section (of DOJ) and the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) (of DOL) may approach reviews and audits of PERM applications going forward. IER has demonstrated that it will utilize its enforcement resources to address activities it views as being in violation of the anti-discrimination provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act, regardless of the size of a company’s PERM program. As a result, companies are wondering whether and/or how to alter their PERM recruitment practices that appear to comply with regulations but may attract unnecessary scrutiny of applications. Join our panel of experts as they discuss the specific treatment of the regulations in this case and offer guidance for avoiding potential regulatory recruitment violations in the future.

Featured Topics

  • What Hiring Practices Are Likely to Attract DOL Audits, and Why?
  • Are DOJ and DOL Creating New Rules in the Absence of Regulatory Updates?
  • How to Defend Against Claims of Discrimination Against U.S. Workers and Potential Recruitment Violations
  • Best Practices for PERM Recruitment in Light of the Facebook Settlements
