Employment and Training Administration

Labor Certification for the Permanent Employment of Aliens in the 
United States; Establishment of E-Mail Address for Receipt of Reports 
of Potential Non-Compliance

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.


SUMMARY: The Department of Labor (DOL or Department) is publishing an 
e-mail address for the receipt and processing of reports of potential 
violations of its recently published Final Rule seeking to protect the 
integrity of the permanent labor certification program and reduce 
incentives for fraud and abuse.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William L. Carlson, Administrator, 
Office of Foreign Labor Certification, 200 Constitution Avenue, NW., 
Washington, DC 20210; telephone (202) 693-3010 (this is not a toll-free 
number). Individuals with hearing or speech impairments may access the 
telephone number above via TTY by calling the toll-free Federal 
Information Relay Service at (800) 877-8339.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On May 17, 2007, the Department published a 
Final Rule to protect the integrity of the permanent labor 
certification program, to reduce the incentives and opportunities for 
fraud, and to further fulfill the Department's statutory obligation to 
protect the wages and working conditions of U.S. workers. 72 FR 27904 
(May 17, 2007). As part of that Rule, the Department informed the 
public it was considering the establishment of a toll-free telephone 
number, or development of other means, to receive reports on potential 
non-compliance with the Final Rule's provisions.
    The Department continues its consideration of a toll-free number, 
and has determined that as an initial matter, employers, foreign 
workers, U.S. workers, and others who wish to submit information on 
potential violations may do so through an e-mail box:
    This box will be monitored for reports of alleged non-compliance 
with the regulations governing the permanent labor certification 
program. The Employment and Training Administration will determine an 
appropriate course of action for each report, and may refer individual 
inquiries to DOL's Employment Standards Administration, the DOL Office 
of Inspector General, the Department of Homeland Security, and/or other 
authorities. If appropriate, DOL may determine that no response is 

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 30 day of July, 2007.
Emily Stover Derocco,
Assistant Secretary, Employment and Training Administration.
