Qui Tam Claims
The federal False Claims Act allows private individuals to bring claims ("qui tam" claims) on behalf of the government against companies and others who have government contracts or receive or use federal funding and who have defrauded the federal government in some way.
How Does an Employer File a Labor Certification?
Employers who want to hire foreign nationals as either permanent or temporary employees may have to receive labor certification for the Department of Labor (DOL) before they can hire the new employees. The DOL requires labor certifications as a way to protect US workers from job displacement, lower wages and compromised working environments. The labor certifications also help protect the foreign-born workers by requiring employers to pay them fair wages.
Immigration Law Case Summaries
[03/10] Turijan v. Holder
A petition for review of the Board of Immigration Appeals' (BIA) decision finding that petitioner's conviction for felony false imprisonment is a categorical crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT) is granted, where felony false imprisonment under California law is not a categorical CIMT because: 1) it does not require the intent to injure, actual injury, or a protected class of victim; and 2) courts in California have applied the statute to conduct that is not morally turpitudinous.
