PERM: The DOL Labor Certification

All labor certifications must be filed through the PERM process. PERM stands for program electronic review management. PERM is the process used by employers who are seeking a labor certification from the Department of Labor (DOL).

When Is a Labor Certification Necessary?

People seeking a permanent residence card (green card) through employment-based immigration are placed in one of several preference categories. These categories range from first preference to fifth preference. For immigrants in the first preference category (extraordinary ability and managers and executives), fourth preference category (special immigrants/religious workers) and fifth preference category (investors and entrepreneurs) labor certification is not required.

In most cases, immigrants in the second and third preference category must receive a labor certification from the DOL. Immigrants who fall into the second and third preference category include professionals with advance degrees, skilled workers and unskilled workers. After obtaining a labor certification from the DOL through the PERM process, the employer must file the appropriate I-140 petition on behalf of the sponsored worker with the United Stated Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
