SUMMARY: The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) of the Department of Labor (Department or DOL) is amending its regulations relating to the permanent employment of aliens in the United States.
In the Proposed Rule, the Department stated that the proposed regulation would allow employers to request that a permanent labor certification application be processed as an RIR request only if the initial application was filed on or before July 26, 2000, the date of publication.
As stated in the proposed rule, ETA's operating experience indicates that without such a limitation, employers may be motivated to file large numbers of cases, many of which may be inadequately prepared, simply to obtain a filing date and then convert such cases to RIR processing.

In some states, insurance for certain small firms is available only through a state-operated risk pool or from one insurance carrier.
Additionally, small employers are sensitive to the cost of state benefit mandates (such as requiring coverage for hair transplants, or treatment provided by acupuncturists) that drive up the cost of the small group coverage.
For AHPs that offer fully insured coverage, state insurance commissioners would be responsible for the solvency of the insurance company issuing the policy, just as they are responsible for insurance policies issued to group health plans today.
