We are doing perm labor certs for 6 special ed teachers. We have been able to eliminate all applicants except one. They do not want to hire this person, but at this point she appears qualified and has good references. Can we still file 5 of the applications, or will all 6 suffer because of the one qualified applicant. We used the same ads and recruitment for all 6 teachers.

Answer by Joel Stewart:

Special Ed Teachers -- What do you mean she APPEARS qualified? Is she also AVAILABLE? You can ask her to assist you to confirm her can also do some "digging" in her background...why does she want the job? There is a shortage of special ed she not employed now? If not, why not? Why does she want YOUR job and not another job? I think there are a lot of issues you can investigate before you throw in the towel on this one. In the final analysis, if you have six positions, you can hire the five aliens and the one US worker. Another option is to consider whether the US worker is interested in the special ed job as a permanent position...what does her resume state about her intentions? Does she want a job with more responsibility? Perhaps the employer has a different, more challenging job for her?
