About the AILA Department of Labor Liaison Committee

The AILA DOL Liaison Committee meets with the Department of Labor (DOL) Office of Foreign Labor Certification and other stakeholder groups to discuss policy issues and trends related to temporary (H-2A, H-2B) and permanent labor certification (H-1B) applications, labor condition applications (LCAs), prevailing wage, and other issues. It also occasionally meets with the DOL Wage and Hour Division (WHD) and Board of Alien Labor Certification Appeals (BALCA). The committee prepares practice pointers, monitors the Message Center to spot issues, tracks trends based on AILA member experiences, provides comments to proposed regulations, and tracks issues in the PERM and FLAG systems, and the DOL Help Desk.
