Immigration Law Firm, Fragomen Sues Department Of Labor

Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy, the largest Immigration law firm in the United States, has sued the US Department of Labor. The lawsuit comes after the Department of Labor had ordered an audit of permanent green cards that were filed by Fragomen. The audit was ordered after the DOL found that Fragomen lawyers may have been advising their clients in regard to US workers who appeared potentially qualified for the position that the green card applicant was applying for. Fragomen, however, denies that helping employers through the hiring process is wrong. According to them, the PERM process is difficult to interpret unless one has the help of an immigration lawyer. In the lawsuit by Fragomen, the law firm alleges that some of the rules of the Department of Labor are unconstitutional and amount to interference of the attorney-client relationship.
