The law firm of Lubiner, Schmidt & Palumbo realizes that constant awareness of the trends at the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is essential when it comes to a Permanent Labor Certification or PERM. Although there have been no changes in the regulations, there has been a noticeable trend of increased PERM application audits and denials at DOL.
What this means for a company seeking to hire foreign nationals is that it is essential they choose an experienced immigration law firm that will guide them through the process and ensure that they meet the DOL’s exacting standards.
DOL demands that companies seeking to file an immigrant petition for foreign nationals first conduct recruitment of U.S. workers and prove to the department that there are no American workers who are willing and qualified to fill a position. This requires that a company conduct recruitment through various means, such as newspaper ads, internet postings, in-house postings and other recruitment sources as outlined under the PERM application process.
