PERM Labor Certification DIY Package 
Provides Detailed Labor Certification Application Process

The Labor Certification program or PERM Labor Certification is designed to ensure that the employment of foreign workers on a permanent basis will not adversely affect the job opportunities, wages, and working conditions of U.S. workers. A permanent labor certification issued by the Department of Labor allows an U.S. employer to hire a foreign worker to work permanently in the United States.

The Labor Certification is also called the PERM (Program Electronic Review Management) Labor Certification application, which is an attestation by an U.S. employer that it has conducted a test of the labor market in the local area for the position for which a foreign employee is being sponsored, and that it has failed to find U.S. workers who are qualified for the position. The PERM Labor Certification is the first step for a foreign worker to obtain an employment-based immigrant visa or green card. The employment-based preference categories that require PERM labor certification are EB-2 and EB-3, but not include the EB-2 National Interest Waiver.

We are the premier online resource where the labor certification process of how to file a PERM labor certification application based on employment is detailed in our high quality Complete Do-It-Yourself PERM application package. We provide PERM labor certification DIY package and various PERM application resources, and share the best practices and questions/answers to help your labor certification application process.

Labor Certification Application Process, Requirements, and Resources

For most foreign nationals seeking employment based permanent resident status or green card, the first stage in the long process is to file a labor certification application which is processed by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Before a U.S. employer can file an immigration petition for a foreign worker with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) in most EB-2 and EB-3 positions, the employer must first obtain an approved labor certification from the DOL.

An application for labor certification is submitted to the DOL by using ETA Form 9089. The DOL must certify to the USCIS both that there are not sufficient U.S. workers able, willing, qualified, and available to accept the job offered the alien at the prevailing wage for that occupation 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. The questions in the PERM application form include whether the employer provided notice to its employees, whether the alien beneficiary gained any of the qualifying experience with the employer, whether the alien is currently employed by the employer, whether proficiency in a foreign language is required to perform the job duties, and whether U.S. applicants were rejected for solely job related reasons.

At, we are dedicated to providing you with the best resources for the PERM labor certification application, and we make the very useful information available to help you prepare your labor certification application in EB-2 or EB-3 categories even without a lawyer. Our service and Complete Do-It-Yourself PEMR Labor Certification Package will help you avoid the long and painful immigration application process.
