Labor Certification Advertising Requirements

 In labor certification advertising

Labor certification advertising is a detailed process that United States Employers must go through in order to hire a person from another country for a position in the United States.  This process is not looking to displace employment from United States citizens but instead, make sure that the company has gone through their due diligence in filling the position by offering it to United States Citizens first.

What is a labor certification ad

A labor certification ad is an advertisement that employers must place to fulfill the requirements of their recruitment report. It is a requirement that all employers must first place a labor certification ad with the state workforce agency in the location of intended employment. The advertisement must run for a predetermined number of days in a newspaper that is considered to be one of general circulation in the area where the job will be located. This does not, however, mean that the actual address where the job will take place must be listed in the ad.

In order for American Citizens to be given a fair shot at obtaining a position with specific specializations or skills, it is important that the business advertises the employment opportunity in a way that allows all people whom qualify to apply. Because employers must prepare a recruitment report that details all those who may have been somewhat qualified for the job, it is critical that all advertisements that detail the terms of employment to give specific information that reduces the submission of generic applications that are not suitable for the job.
