RE: Comments on “Labor Certification for the Permanent Employment of Aliens in the United States; Implementation of New System” 67 Fed. Reg. 30466 (May 6, 2002)
Dear Mr. Ziegler:
We are writing to comment on the Notice of Proposed Rule Making issued by the Department of Labor (DOL) in the Federal Register on May 6, 2002. These comments are being submitted by the July 5, 2002 deadline, as indicated in the Federal Register.
Although the proposed changes to 20 C.F.R. Sections 655 and 656 (PERM) include some positive steps toward creating an improved framework to process labor certifications quickly and reduce application backlogs, we are concerned that the following provisions do not reflect contemporary business practices and may promote instability in the job market.
We urge you to revise 20 CFR Sections 655 and 656 to address the above concerns.
Cite as AILA Doc. No. 02062734.
