The Labor Department will not extend certain flexible deadlines it provided to employers because of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to an FAQ issued by the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) Thursday.
Background: The new FAQ rescinds Question #3 of the first COVID-19 bulletin that was issued March 20.
BAL Analysis: Employers in the PERM process should be aware that the Labor Department has not extended the above deadlines and that PERM applications will be denied if the recruitment was delayed beyond the temporary timelines. Employers may continue to seek an extension of response deadlines for audit notifications and other discretionary deadlines, though they will have to demonstrate a clear need and the granting of an extension is not assured.
