FN14.   Labor certification applications filed under PERM are subject to audit. When an audit is recommended for an application, the adjudication period could be longer. Audits will be computer-generated via a “random-sampling methodology” or based on an analyst’s review of the application warranting a request for further information from the employer. If audited, the employer must respond within 30 days of the audit request. Failure to respond to the audit request or to a denial of an application may result in all of the employer’s future filings being subject to supervised recruitment by the SWA for a two-year period.
