Washington, D.C. Labor Certifications Attorney
Proudly Serving Clients in Arlington & Beyond
In most instances, before a U.S. employer can submit an immigration petition to the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the employer must obtain a certified labor certification application from the DOL’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA).
The DOL must certify to the USCIS that there are not sufficient qualified U.S. workers willing to accept the job opportunity in the area of intended employment and that employment of the foreign worker will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers.
Call 703-549-5445 today to speak to our Washington, D.C. labor certifications attorney.
The Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) is the system used for obtaining Labor Certification. A successful PERM labor certification demonstrates to the DOL that (1) the employer intends to pay the appropriate prevailing wage for the position in the geographical area, and (2) hiring a foreign national worker to fill the position will not adversely impact the U.S. labor market by displacing U.S. workers. After the Labor Certification is approved by the DOL, an Immigrant Petition should be filed with the USCIS within 180-days.
