How do I provide documentation for my radio commercials?
Long gone are the days of holding up the tape recorder next to the radio so that we can get a tape recording of something on the air. However, documentation that the ad was run on time, and correctly, must be provided in congruence with the DOL regulations.
What kind of documentation do I need for my radio ads?
To provide proof that a radio commercial has in fact aired, the employer should keep a copy of the of the text that was read in the commercial along with a written confirmation or broadcast contract from the radio or television station stating when the advertisement was aired. Additionally, it is also possible to get an mp3 audio version of the commercial as it will air as well.
In order for commercials to be an acceptable form of advertising, the commercial must have been completed between 30 to 180 days prior to the filing of the application. It is wise to keep a record of all contracts and payments made between you and the advertising station.
Radio Commercials for Labor Certification can be completed on time and in full compliance with the DOL on your behalf by a reputable immigration advertising agency.
