§ 655.1055Notice to the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) and the Attorney General (AG).
(a) The Administrator shall notify the Attorney General and ETA of the final determination of a violation by an employer, and of the disqualification of the employer from employing F-1 students, upon the earliest of the following events:
(1) When the Administrator issues a written determination that the employer has committed a violation, and no timely request for hearing is made by the employer pursuant to § 655.1020 of this part; or
(2) When, after a hearing on a timely request pursuant to § 655.1020 of this part, the administrative law judge issues a decision and order finding a violation by the employer; or
(3) When, although the administrative law judge found that there was no violation by the employer, the Secretary, upon subsequent review upon a timely request pursuant to § 655.1045 of this part, issues a decision finding that a violation was committed by the employer.
(b) The Attorney General, upon receipt of notification from the Administrator pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section, shall take appropriate action to cancel work authorization to F-1 students for employment with that employer, and to prevent issuance of new work authorization with respect to that employer.
(1) The Administrator's notice to the Attorney General shall, to the extent known from the investigation, specify the school(s) which issued work authorization for the F-1 students who were employed by the employer. The Attorney General shall inform the appropriate authority at each of the specified school(s) that any work authorization(s) issued for F-1 student(s) to be employed by that employer shall immediately be revoked, and that no new work authorization shall be issued for employment of F-1 student(s) by that employer. The Attorney General shall, in addition, take any other appropriate action to effectuate the disqualification of that employer through revocation of work authorization(s) at any other school(s) that may authorize employment with the disqualified employer.
(2) A copy of the Administrator's notice to the Attorney General may also be sent by the Administrator to each school identified in the notice as a school from which F-1 students have been employed by the disqualified employer. Such copy of the Administrator's notice, upon receipt by the school, shall constitute sufficient notice for the DSO to revoke work authorization(s) and to refuse to issue new work authorization(s) for employment of F-1 students by that employer. Any school which issued or may issue work authorization(s) for employment of any F-1 student(s) by the employer, but which was not known by the Administrator to have done so, or notified by copy of the Administrator's decision, shall comply with any instructions from the Attorney General regarding revocation and nonissuance of work authorization for employment of any F-1 student(s) by the employer. In addition, any school (whether or not it received a copy of the Administrator's notice to the Attorney General regarding the employer) shall revoke F-1 work authorization(s) and refuse to issue new F-1 work authorization(s) for any employer which is identified as a disqualified employer on the list published periodically in the Federal Register by ETA.
(3) Continued or new employment of any F-1 student by the employer shall constitute a violation of the INA's employer sanctions provisions, irrespective of whether the F-1 student's work authorization has been formally revoked by the DSO or INS.
(c) ETA, upon receipt of the Administrator's notice pursuant to paragraph (a) of this section, shall cancel any F-1 attestation filed by the employer under subpart J of this part, shall not accept for filing any attestation submitted by the employer, and shall so notify the employer.
