Companies are aware of the consequences that could occur if immigration ads are not carefully written. Therefore, they often seek help from an expert advertising agency who has connections with attorneys.
Lawyers who understand immigration laws can save employers quite a bit of money in legal costs when they have their job recruitment ads written. Furthermore, legal professionals can save companies time better spent offering clients quality products and services instead of having to go to court. It’s all in how immigration ads are worded.
One of the tricks to making quality “help wanted” ads directed toward foreigners is in the adherence to what is required by the Department of Labor. Initially, open positions are usually offered to United States citizens as required by law. Therefore, the first set of ads written by companies will not be directed to foreigners but rather to U.S. workers. Once this is completed, however, the process of applying for the right to hire immigrants begins.
Whether it be immigration ads for employing international workers or domestic recruitment ads, they must be legitimate. The DOL and other state or federal agencies provides the standards for determining what responsibilities are typically expected when working in certain positions. In the process, a certain amount of wages that normally would be assigned to that job opportunity do apply.
When creating immigration ads for people who want to work in the U.S., the job order must have the following information: Description of job duties, qualifications and education required, salary as defined by the National Prevailing Wage Center, and other vital employment information. This recruitment ad usually is printed in a Sunday edition of a newspaper, on employment agency sites, and at job centers.
Sometimes, employers might also decide they need television or radio ads. The content written for these is typically held up to the same standards as is the text ads. This is all done to make sure companies are not hiring people from other countries illegally. It also is a method of work recruitment designed to give priority to U.S. citizens who need to support themselves and their families.
