Posting the Intent to File a Labor Certification in TAM


This document will review the process to post the intent to file a labor certification in TAM when a foreign national has been hired and an institution is now working through the green card process (permanent residency).

Process Considerations:

  • An individual will have to monitor this process closely in the event that applicants apply to this posting. If applicants apply, a representative from the Business Unit will have to follow up and notify them that it was not an actual vacancy.
  • The configured reject reasons will NOT satisfy the US Department of Labor list of why other candidates were not selected for the job.  Please continue to recreate an acceptable list during the permanent residency process.
  • A job opening cannot be cloned if the Job Code is no longer active.

The Job Opening needs to progress through the normal Job Opening Approval process to be posted to Candidate Gateway (External - All Jobs) and Self Service Careers (UW Self Service Careers).

Once the Notice is created, it must be posted online and in hard copy on a bulletin board per the regulation below.

If there is no such bargaining representative, by posted notice to the employer's employees at the facility or location of the employment. The notice must be posted for at least 10 consecutive business days. The notice must be clearly visible and unobstructed while posted and must be posted in conspicuous places where the employer's U.S. workers can readily read the posted notice on their way to or from their place of employment. Appropriate locations for posting notices of the job opportunity include locations in the immediate vicinity of the wage and hour notices required by 29 CFR 516.4 or occupational safety and health notices required by 29 CFR 1903.2(a). In addition, the employer must publish the notice in any and all in-house media, whether electronic or printed, in accordance with the normal procedures used for the recruitment of similar positions in the employer's organization. The documentation requirement may be satisfied by providing a copy of the posted notice and stating where it was posted, and by providing copies of all the in-house media, whether electronic or print, that were used to distribute notice of the application in accordance with the procedures used for similar positions within the employer's organization.
