What to Know about Labor Certification
The Department of Labor (DOL) may issue a permanent labor certification,
enabling a foreign worker to work for a U.S. employer permanently in the
United States. In more cases than not, the U.S. employer is required to
get a certified labor certification application from the DOL's Employment
and Training Administration (ETA) before submitting an
immigration petition to the Department of Homeland Security's U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
On behalf of the U.S. employer, the DOL must prove to the USCIS that there
are absolutely no adequate workers in the United States that are able,
willing, available and qualified to perform the opportunity of employment
in the designated area. It must also be proven that the wages and working
conditions of comparable U.S. employees will not be subject to change
due to the employment of the foreign worker. If you need help beginning
or completing the labor certification process, call a Tampa immigration
lawyer for quality assistance.

ETA Form 750 applications) had to be filed at the corresponding National
Processing Center (NPC). This form is now mandatory for an employer's

Passwords, identifiers, or personal identifier numbers (PINs) may be needed
by the DOL in the labor certification process, of which will be used only
by the individual. Therefore, any electronic conveyance will be presumed
to originate from the individual that has the corresponding identifier used.
