I am completing my 5th year in US on 29th of April and my employer is in process of applying my GC PERM Labor certification and he is asking me to move to newyork (Employer based out) saying that i have to be within 120 miles radius of newyork to get my labor cleared without any issues (RFE/Audit). I am currently working here in Oregon for a good client, long term project and also in don't want to move to coast to coast again.
Please let me know whether the above mentioned scenario is true for labor certification or not.
Thanks in advance.
DOL has started to issue more audits for PERM cases where the employee is in a geographical location which is different than the location of the PERM position. However, that is not the only reason for an audit. There are many complex issues that apply to PERM cases so you should consult an immigration attorney to discuss this further.
