Kellogg Language in PERM Cases [Audio Seminar]
Nov. 1, 2012 @ 2:00 pm (EDT)

This panel will focus on alternative requirements in PERM labor certification cases and the use of Kellogg language. Discussion will include the recent adjudication trends by Department of Labor (DOL), as well as BALCA decisions on the topic. Is the DOL substituting its judgment for that of the employer in determining who is a qualified job applicant? Is DOL's recent interpretation of the Kellogg language resulting in the broadening of the employer's actual minimum requirements? Panelists will address practical tips on how employers can state alternative job requirements on the ETA-9089 as well as the ETA-9141.

• When is Kellogg Language Required? If an Employer Lists It on Form-9089, then What Does that Mean for the Employer's Review of Job Applicants?
• What Exactly Does "Any Suitable Combination" Mean?
• What Are Substantially Equivalent Alternative Requirements? Does the SVP Have to Be Equal?
• Recent Developments with Kellogg Language in Light of BALCA Decisions in Cases such as Federal Insurance, Goldman Sachs, and JP Morgan
• Alternative Requirements Now Have to Be Listed on the Form-9141 Prevailing Wage Request to DOL
