The process for permanent labor certification has changed drastically over the past few years. As of March 28, 2005 a new electronic program (PERM) was implemented that drastically improved the permanent labor certification process. Under the new PERM regulation, ETA form 750 applications were no longer accepted and instead new ETA Form 9098 applications had to be filed.
