Ad Requiring a BA or MS Degree OK for Multiple-Opening Labor Certification

In a recent decision by BALCA, the Board held that the advertisement used by the employer for multiple openings was not confusing or misleading, and would not prevent qualified U.S. workers from applying.   “Requires a BA/BS or MA/MS degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Math, Information Systems, Business or related field,” is the language used by the Employer in Matter of Microsoft Corp., 2011-PER-00789 (Apr. 12, 2013).  Such language is acceptable to support a labor certification filed for the position of a “support engineer” which required a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, Physics, Math, Information Systems, Business or a related subject.
