In order to sponsor a foreign national for permanent residence, the University must post notice of filing to U.S. workers at all worksites for 10 consecutive business days (excluding weekends and holidays). An International Scholars Operations (ISO) advisor will ask the unit to post the notice of filing when preparing the Application for Permanent Employment Certification; do not post this notice without being asked to do so by ISO. The job announcement must be posted at the worksite adhering to the following guidelines:

  • Posted in a conspicuous location at each worksite (including home, if employee will work remotely)
  • Posted in in-house media normally used for recruitment purposes such as departmental newsletters, where available

After the 10 business day posting period, the notice must be signed by either the chair of the search committee, or the department chair, indicating the exact dates and location of the posting. Forward the posted notice to the UW ISO at Box 351245 for inclusion in the file.
