"Are We All Certifiable?" -- An Insider's Tour Through The Maddening World Of Labor Certification
The loopy challenges of modern-day labor-certification practice have caused
U.S. employers and their immigration attorneys to identify with Randle
Patrick McMurphy, the all-too-sane character portrayed by Jack Nicholson in
the 1975 classic film One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest. In today's deranged
world of alien labor certifications, rules are announced, then rules are
reversed, procedures are proclaimed, and then they morph into alternate
incarnations. The inmates in this virtual asylum are chanting in a frenzy,
"PERM is coming, PERM is coming"; "Backlog Reduction, Backlog Reduction",
but PERM never seems to arrive, and backlogs grow ever larger.
Despite the seeming insanity of the real world practice of
labor-certification, foreign workers still clamor for certified ETA-750s,
and legal strictures must in all events be honored. Rather than joining
the lunatic fringe, shake off your anomie and sign up with ILW.com for a
cutting-edge teleconference series exploring best-practices and
tried-and-true labor certification solutions.
