Employment Based Immigration – PERM: LC




Program Electronic Review Management or PERM is currently a computer-based system, which has a new set of procedures that has replaced the traditional paper-based review of a labor certification application.
The Labor Certification Process

Labor certification, also referred to as permanent labor certification, is issued by the Department of Labor and is a process that allows a U.S. employer to hire a foreign worker for a permanent position in the United States.

If a foreign national is immigrating under the Eb-2 or Eb-3 employment based immigration categories, unless they are using the National Interest Waiver, his or her employer needs to obtain an approved labor certification request from the Department of Labor prior to the employer submitting an immigration petition to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This process is used by the Department of Labor to ensure that no qualified U.S. workers exist that are able, willing, qualified, and available to accept the job at issue and wage offered, and that the employment of the foreign national will not have an adverse affect on the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.
Occupational Special Recruitment PERM

Occupational special recruitment PERM is a program specifically for college and university professors. In order to be eligible for this program, the foreign national must meet these requirements:

1.      His or her prospective position of employment must be tenured or tenure tracked;
2.      The position must have been advertised in professional print media by the employer;
3.      The PERM application must have been filed within 18 months after the acceptance of
The procedures and standards under the occupational special recruitment PERM are different from the regular PERM process.
