Why Was My PERM Selected For Audit?

"The OFLC Audit Plan presents Audit and Supervised Recruitment Tiers which specify the types of cases that will be targeted for Audit Review and tagged for Supervised Recruitment.  As the DOL has indicated, this plan is being released in response to a FOIA request.  Past practice informs us that the DOL would certainly have preferred to continue keeping us in the dark.  The plan is dated March 19, 2013 and there is no way to know whether these audit and Supervised Recruitment tiers remain active or whether new tiers have since been added.  However, this information does reveal the DOL's thinking with respect to audits and Supervised Recruitment and helps shed some light on the reasons why certain PERM applications are selected." - Cora-Ann V.
