I'm in the same boat. My original RIR is denied because of screw up by the company and lawyer (they admit it). They are exploring the option of converting from TR to RIR.

Please let me knw if you know anything

I'm not lucky like others. This is my company's lawyer. This is the first case in my company (15 years) where any sort of rejection/RFE/downgrade to TR is done.

There is no -ve impact on coverting to RIR. If RIR is denied, you will still be processed as TR. You wont loose your PD

This isn't really answering any questions, but I've asked my company's lawyer to look into the benefits (and/or disadvantages) of making the switch frm TR (non-RIR) to RIR. Since this notice was only made recently by the DOL (in the Federal Register on October 6, 2006), I would imagine that it will take some time for lawyers, etc to figure out all the implications. As soon as I get any information, I will definitely post it.

Default Conversion may not help

I looked at converting to RIR but there seems to be no point in changing. There is no guarantee that an RIR application will be processed before an TR. Also, they are picking up applications in random order and not FIFO. So, I decided against the conversion.

My lawyer thinks they have not even started looking at TR applications.
He told me that he will file RIR conversion. What exactly is the procedure?

STAmisha,

My lawyer has initiated conversion of my TR case to a RIR. As per the FAQ provided by him, provided that the job duities and title is the same; he will get a prevaling wage determination from the SWA (this is the stage where I am right now), next he would post the ads for 10 days.... and continue with the regular recruiting procedure as per the RIR rules.

As per his estimate he would be able to file the RIR conversion request (with the recruitment data) to the Philly BEC in 2-3 weeks.

If you want I can e-mail his deatiled FAQ to you.

Default Response to jamsumfarray

I presume that you have a lawyer. They should work with you HR group to get the ads set and sent to the BPC.

Based on the Federal Register, the only labour certifications that cannot be converted are those that already have a job order initiated through the BPC, as part of the supervised recruitment process.

I spke with attorney Murthy's office .

Here is the process.

Advertise in a news paper for 4 weeks
Advesie in website for 4 weeks
Advertise in company's location for 4 weeks

All the above ads running consecutively.

Then there might be 4 weeks silent period

File a form with DOL with all this

** be ready for the **** incomepetent BEC to throw another rock at you**
