Corporation ordered to pay $1,000 fine


The Department of Labor has fined Success International Corp. $1,000 and denied its application for a Certification of Good Standing.

According to the order issued by the department’s Administrative Hearing Office, the company is sanctioned a fine of $1,000 and denied the certification on five grounds.

It said that the employer failed to post job vacancy announcements at the DOL’s website and to demonstrate good faith effort to hire a U.S. citizen, a CNMI permanent resident, or a U.S. permanent resident.

The employer also failed to submit quarterly total workforce listing documents for the whole of 2014, workforce plans for 2014 and 2015, and employer’s withholding tax documents for the second, third and fourth quarters of last year.

The administrative order said the certification will only be issued after the sanction has been paid.

Half of the fine must be paid no later than 30 days after the issuance of the order, while the other half may be suspended for one year and then extinguished if Success International complies with the departmental regulations it defied.

However, should the employer fail to comply with the terms of the order, it will be subject to possible reinstatement of the suspended sanction and may have additional monetary sanction.

The employer may appeal its case to the Secretary of Labor until May 25.
