Section 656.29(a) provides that
- A new application for labor certification by the same employer involving the same occupation may be filed at any time after the expiration of 6 months from the date of a denial of certification by the Certifying Officer, except that, if the certification was denied solely because the wage or salary was below the prevailing wage, the employer may reapply immediately pursuant to §§ 656.21, 656.21a, or 656.23, as appropriate.
The employer violated § 656.29(a) where it did not wait the required six months before filing a second application involving the same alien and position. Superior Technical School , 90-INA-37 (Jan. 2, 1991).
