Understanding The PERM Process

The permanent labor certification program (PERM) replaced the traditional labor certification procedure with the intent of streamlining the process for employers sponsoring foreign workers for permanent residency. PERM requires employers to test the job market to determine if qualified U.S. workers are available; employers must advertise the position following U.S. Department of Labor requirements. After the recruitment period, the employer files an application with the U.S. Department of Labor, attesting to the results of the recruitment efforts and the unavailability of qualified U.S. workers. Upon approval by the U.S. Department of Labor, the employer may file an immigrant petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. When a green card is available under the statutory quota the immigrant may file an adjustment of status (green card) application with USCIS or an application for an immigrant visa with an overseas U.S. Consulate.

Navigating the PERM process requires careful attention to detail and adherence to strict legal requirements. Our experienced attorneys will work closely with you and your employer to ensure that all aspects of the application are thoroughly prepared and accurately submitted.
