Based upon a claim by their attorneys that one of the ads on this page was not RIR, we removed the ad on May 19, 2006. We will attempt to get obtain documentation from DOL or on any PERM or RIR applications by this employer, and proceed from there.
The ad was highly suspicious, and, according an email here, the CEO had advertised in 1999 that "we offer the fastest labor certifications/RIR in the country."
Accordingly, there is no question that this employer sponsors greencards, which entails running fake ads via the RIR or PERM process. But since their attorneys claim that this ad was not used for that purpose, we have removed it.

Sacramento Bee and DOL,
|Two of the computer help
wanted ads in today's Sacramento Bee appears to be a fake RIR ads, run
for the intent of securing greencards rather than representing
bonafide openings. I will cc the employer contacts to allow them an
opportunity to refute our allegations:
1. TELECOMMAND email@example.com
Both employers are run by immigrants from India. Both have a history of hiring H-1B employees. Thus both have a motive to run fake ads to secure greencards, by "demonstrating" that no American workers can be found.
The process, however, is a SHAM. Under RIR all that is required is a demonstration of recruiting - all qualified U.S. applicants can be overlooked.
1) TELECOMMAND - www.telecommand.com
The President of Telecommand is Ravi Verma. In December 2002 he personally secured two LCAs for H-1B employees. Among the "openings" in today's ad is "Lead Oracle DBA (ref #52002). Oddly, Telecommand already has a person designated as "the lead Oracle DBA":
So, is Ravi planning to can Shirish? Or are all U.S. worker applicants wasting their time responding to this sham ad?
Telecommand's employees ties to India are on their News/Events link:
Will Ravi disclose whether this is an ad for a greencard, and what percent of his programming staff is other than Indian nationals?
[content removed here]
These RIR ads are fraud upon U.S. workers who respond in good faith to these ads, while the employer and attorneys involved know that RIRs are nearly always granted.
Since the Bee has an editorial position in support of continuing to flooding the job market with H-1B workers, I am waiting to hear your position on the fake ads that you are running - profiting in a scheme which defrauds your readers.
