PERM and Certification for Employers

Los Angeles PERM Attorney

Los Angeles PERM Labor Certification Lawyer

To protect jobs for American workers, the Department of Labor (DOL) requires employers to certify that they have met the requirements for recruiting qualified or trainable U.S. workers from the local workforce. The process is complicated and can require an extraordinary amount of time and energy for employers.

You focus on running a successful business. We’ll handle your certification.

The Law Offices of Vincent W. Davis & Associates is ready to help you with all of your PERM labor certification needs. From ensuring you have met recruitment requirements through record keeping and final certification, we handle everything. When you hire our firm, you can focus on what you do best: operating a successful business.

What is PERM and what are the requirements?

The acronym PERM stands for Program Electronic Review Management. It is the Department of Labor’s newest process for ensuring that American businesses exhaust every resource to find qualified American workers before turning to overseas sources for recruiting workers. PERM was officially put in place on March 28, 2005.

What is required?

Prior to hiring a non-U.S. worker to fill a vacant job opening, employers must prove that an active search and recruitment process took place to find qualified U.S. workers who can either immediately fit the need or who have demonstrated potential to be fully trainable.

  • Under PERM rules, an employer is required to pay a minimum of 100% of the prevailing wages to any non-U.S. worker hired to fill a job.
  • PERM rules must be followed for all labor certification applications filed on or after March 28, 2005.
  • PERM labor certifications are to be filed electronically or by mail to the DOL and must be updated annually.
