Significance of PERM Labor Certification for Employers
PERM labor certification acts as the preliminary phase in the standard employment-based “green card” procedure. Barring a few exceptions, employers applying for foreign workers must demonstrate the absence of American workers “qualified, willing, and able” for the role. Labor certification is an affirmation from the U.S. Department of Labor about the vacancy of a specific position at a company due to the unavailability of qualified U.S. workers. Without PERM certification, a company is restricted from offering permanent roles to foreign employees.
