Immigration Webinar Series: Understanding the Basics of PERM Labor Certification

Join immigration attorney Roger Tsai for a series of webinars offering practical tips on immigration and employment eligibility procedures, as well as updates on hot topics in immigration reform and enforcement.

The first webinar in the series will be:

Understanding the Basics of PERM Labor Certification

U.S. employers submitted over 70,000 applications to the Department of Labor (DOL) last year for PERM labor certifications to assist immigrant workers in obtaining green cards. The PERM process is the first of three major steps in obtaining permanent residency and is usually the most difficult. The DOL typically conducts audits on 33% of all PERM applications and denies approximately 13%. Because the PERM process can be a confusing maze of recruitment steps and rules, join us as we discuss the basics about PERM labor certifications, including:

  • The PERM recruitment process
  • Prevailing wage rates
  • Frequent reasons for PERM certification denial
  • Options to expedite the PERM recruitment process
  • Proposals to modernize the PERM process
