Dept of Labor posts PERM labor certification FAQ #12


The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published Round 12 of their Frequently Asked Questions (posted below). It was short and appears intended to disallow attorneys or agents to be the point of contact for Employers. It's odd since anytime a person or party is represented by an attorney in all areas of American jurisprudence, the attorney is the point of contact.  DOL has historically shown distrust of attorneys and agents, and probably with reason due to many unfortunate instances of immigration fraud. 

In June 2008 the DOL famously and aggressively went after the internationally renowned Fragomen law firm to their embarrassment.
