What factors may affect a Reduction in Recruitment (RIR)

The following factors, similiar to the Labor Certification process, may have an impact on the outcome of an RIR:

  • Current status of the U.S. economy on a national, regional, and local level.
  • Shortage/surplus of job candidates within the local area.
  • Nature of the job and whether it requires specialized or basic training. For example, a software engineer requires more specialized training than a manager in a fast food chain.
  • Employer's size.
  • Employer's layoff record within the past year.
  • Employer's hiring practices of U.S. workers evidenced by its percentage in relation to its entire workforce.
  • Salary offered.
