Who May be Selected to be Audited in the PERM Labor Certification?
A particular case may be selected for audit for several reasons. Cases may be flagged for audit on the basis of a review of the application or they may be randomly selected by the DOL’s computer system. The audit notice will detail the documentation that must be submitted. The employer has to respond in 30 days or the application will be denied. The DOL has declined to specify the criteria for when an audit letter will be issued. The agency targets applications for audit that appear to have problematic issues, for example, applications listing foreign language requirements or requirements above the SVP (standard vocational preparation) level for the occupation, etc.
