BALCA Reverses Denial due to due process


BALCA reversed the Certifying Officer’s denial and remanded the matter for certification where DOL had faulted the employer for not listing a relocation requirement in recruitment advertising and on the ETA Form 9089 for a position with a primary work site “and various unanticipated locations throughout the U.S.” The employer had relied on the 1994 Barbara Farmer Memo, which BALCA agreed makes no distinction between travel and relocation. BALCA further opined that it was not fundamentally fair to require that the possibility of relocation be specifically disclosed in the advertisement and application in absence of notice or guidance, particularly when the organized immigration bar has been pressing OFLC for years to clarify issues related to “roving” employees.
