Minnesota PERM Resources Attorney

Immigrants to the United States seeking permanent residence through employment apply through the PERM application process. This is a labor certification process that requires employers to submit a PERM application to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), confirming they have tried to recruit native American workers for the job in question, and have not been able to fill that job.

As an initial step, the employer makes an electronic request to the DOL for a prevailing wage determination (PWD) for the job, duties, requirements, and location for his job opening. The employer affirms that he has advertised the job in a newspaper in his geographical area of employment, with a state workforce agency, and has posted the employment opportunity at his worksite. These efforts are to demonstrate his good faith attempts to find native American workers.

If there are no qualified workers who apply for the job, an employer then electronically submits the PERM application, form ETA-9089 to the Department of Labor. This process may take several months for the DOL to evaluate the PERM application. Then the employer has 180 days to submit form I-140 to the USCIS.
