BALCA Denial – Failure to Provide Proof of Telephone Log in the PERM Audit File

In Matter of Scenic Landscaping BALCA upheld the PERM denial because the employer failed to provide proof that they held telephone interviews.

20 C.F.R. § 656.20(b) requires the employer to provide a detailed telephone log in the case of a telephone interview. (application will be denied if there is a substantial failure by the employer to provide required documentation after an Audit Notification is issued).
