What May Be the Possible Reasons for ETA Form 9089 Rejection?

Hi William:

My employer filed PERM Labor Certification for me recently, by using the online filing of ETA Form 9089. But the ETA Form 9089 was rejected by DOL. Do we need to refile it or appeal it? and what may be the possible reasons for ETA Form 9089 rejection?


Before discussing how to appeal an ETA Form 9089 rejection, it is helpful to outline a few of the reasons why the DOL may reject it in the first place. The possible reasons include mere typos, such as errors in the employer’s name or address. The DOL may also reject the ETA Form 9089 if it feels that the job duties are not typical of the job, 

If the employer listed atypical job requirements, such as knowledge of a foreign language, or if the employer listed job requirements that exceed what the position actually requires, such as requiring a Ph.D. degree for a software programmer, then the DOL may reject the ETA Form 9089 application.
