Matter of Credit Suisse Securities, 2010-PER-103 (October 19, 2010)

The Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (BALCA) held that advertisements placed in connection with one of the three separate additional recruitment steps required by the standard labor certification recruitment regulations at 20 C.F.R. § 656.17(e)(1)(ii), "including website advertisements, must comply with the content requirements [of newspaper advertisements] listed in Section 656.17(f)."
