Employment Law: Ohio and Federal: Board of Alien Labor Certification


If an employer's application for labor certification is denied, the employer may appeal the denial to Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (BALCA), which is under the Department of Labor.  If BALCA denies the appeal, the employer or the employee may seek review in Federal Court.
