What happens to my labor certification if the company goes out of business or is acquired or I am laid off?

If the issue is a corporate acquisition or merger, the specifics of the acquisition or merger will need to be considered by our firm to determine whether the labor certification may still be used. If the issue is that the U.S. employer is going out of business entirely or the labor certification position is the subject of a layoff, then the labor certification cannot be used. This is because the labor certification is regarding an open job opportunity with the U.S. employer that the employer desires to fill permanently. If the U.S. employer closes or there is a layoff or other termination, the labor certification is invalid since there is no longer a job to fill. If you are aware that any of these events may occur, please contact our firm.
