Experienced PERM/Labor Certification Attorneys
In most cases, a company wishing to employ a foreign national on a permanent basis in the U.S. must first obtain an approved PERM labor certification request (Form ETA 9089) from the U.S. Department of Labor. This form is then submitted with a visa application and other documentation to United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) for approval of an immigrant visa petition.
The labor certification process is very complex. If the certification request does not satisfy the requirements of the Department of Labor, the request may be returned to the employer for audit which will delay certification. Nationwide, audits are becoming increasingly common in the labor certification practices today.
To navigate this maze of regulations and paperwork, the services and skills of an experienced PERM/Labor Certification attorney is essential. Rogers & Rogers has been providing services in the area of labor certification for many years. We understand the rules, what the Department of Labor and USCIS require, and how to secure labor certification in the fastest and most efficient manner possible.
