USCIS’ office of Fraud Detection and National Security (FDNS) performs audits of Employers who utilize the H-1B programs which involve collecting information/documentation during site visits to verify the petition and underlying Labor Condition Application (LCA) that are either pending or approved. Recently, L-1 petitions have also been the subject of audits by FDNS and the U.S. Department of Justice.
The Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) also has the authority to investigate employers to determine if they have meet the conditions of the LCA or engaged in prohibited conduct related to the LCA.
Our firm can assist your business in developing LCA compliance policies and procedures, conduct training with the staff who handle your LCA files and conduct an audit of your LCA file to ensure it in compliance with all applicable laws under USCIS and DOL.
Should your business become the subject of an audit from USCIS’ FDNS, DOL or U.S. Department of Justice our Firm can assist you in responding to one of the above agencies’ requests and defend your business in a government investigation.
