Labor Certification

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.

As of December 27th, 2004, ETA established a final regulation of the permanent labor certification program (PERM) that efficiently executes an overhauled permanent labor certification program made effective on March 28th, 2005. As of this date, all ETA Form 9089 applications (replacing the former ETA Form 750 applications) had to be filed at the corresponding National Processing Center (NPC). This form is now mandatory for an employer's sponsorship of a foreign national through the labor certification process, specifically for an employment-based green card.

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.
