The Immigration Lawyers at Berd & Klauss PLLC Discuss The Requirements For PERM Labor Certification, Manhattan, New York

Standing for Program Electronic Review Management, PERM is the system utilized to obtain labor certification, and is also the first step for certain foreign nationals in obtaining an employment-based immigrant visa. EB-2 and EB-3 visas both require PERM certification. The whole PERM process requires the petitioning employer to conduct a series of recruitment activities in order to test the labor market prior to filing the application. There are separate requirements that both the employer and the prospective employee must follow in order to adhere to the PERM regulation.

The immigration attorneys at Berd & Klauss PLLC handle immigration law issues for clients throughout New York City. Whether you’re an employer or a foreign national, the lawyers will guide you through the PERM process to a favorable resolution. During the PERM process, prospective employees must attest that they meet the educational and work requirements of the position at the time the labor certification is filed. They must also maintain a valid U.S. status if they live within the U.S.

The position for which the alien is applying must be a full-time offer located within the United States. The employer must also attest that the requirements of the job have not been tailored to meet the requirements of the specific alien. The wage for the position must also be greater than or equal to the prevailing wage in the area of intended employment.

The PERM regulations and requirements must be strictly adhered to in order to ensure success on the part of both the employer and the employee. This process can get complicated, so it’s beneficial to confide in an experienced immigration attorney. Visit Berd & Klauss PLLC online for help during the PERM regulation process.
