OFLC Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

  • For purposes of posting the Notice of Filing for a permanent labor application, what does the Office of Foreign Labor Certification count as a "business day?"

    OFLC has consistently interpreted “business day” to mean Monday through Friday, except for Federal holidays. However, where an employer is open for business on a Saturday, Sunday, and/or holiday, the employer may include the Saturday, Sunday and/or holiday in its count of the 10 consecutive business day period required for the posting of the Notice of Filing so long as the employer demonstrates that it was open for business on those days. Similarly, where an employer is not open for business any day, Monday through Friday, the employer should not include any such days in its count of the 10 consecutive business day period required for the posting of the Notice of Filing.

  • How does an employer demonstrate that it is open for business?

    If an employer is requested on audit or otherwise to demonstrate that it was open for business on a Saturday, Sunday, and/or holiday at the time of posting, the employer must provide documentation which establishes that on those days: 1) its employees were working on the premises and engaged in normal business activity; 2) the worksite was open and available to its clients and/or customers, if applicable, as well as to its employees; and 3) its employees had access to the area where the Notice of Filing was posted

  • What should I do if my permanent labor application was denied because I included a Saturday, Sunday, and/or holiday to complete the Notice of Filing 10 consecutive business day posting requirement?

    Within 30 days of the date of the determination, the employer may file a request for reconsideration with the Certifying Officer and provide documentation demonstrating that at the time of posting the Notice of Filing, the employer was open for business. If the application is already on appeal before the Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals, then the employer may file a request to remand for further processing.
