Permanent Labor Certification (PERM)
Employers are allowed to hire foreign workers to work permanently in the United States through the permanent labor certification (PERM) process. An employer must prove that an available position cannot be filled by a U.S. worker and that employment of the foreign worker will not affect the wages or conditions of similar positions employed by other U.S. workers.

PERM Labor Certification Requirements
Businesses must seek labor certification from the U.S. Department of Labor before an immigrant hire can obtain an EB visa. PERM labor certification shows that the employer has proved that the available position cannot be filled by a U.S. worker and that the employment of the foreign worker will not affect the wages or conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers. Immigration authorization with the USCIS cannot proceed without certification.
The PERM process is complex due to its many requirements, deadlines, and different filings with multiple U.S. agencies. The Law Offices of Scott Warmuth knows how to navigate the United States immigration system. We can help your business secure the workforce it needs.
