Erickson Immigration Group (EIG) is well versed in the preparation and filing of PERM Labor Applications for EB-2 and EB-3 categories. As with every case we take on, clear communication and transparency are integral to our PERM program. At each step, employers and employees are provided with tools, instructions, and regular updates on the process and timelines associated with their case. The PERM process is intricate and extremely complex; our time-tested system processes and resources improve efficiency and streamline the PERM application experience for your employees and HR/Mobility teams.
The PERM process is multi-step and involves very specific instructions from the Department of Labor. Through the PERM process, an employer represents to the Department of Labor that it has conducted a good faith test of the local labor market, and has not found any U.S. workers able, willing, qualified, and available to accept the job opportunity in the area of intended employment.
EIG attorneys supervise each step of the PERM process to ensure accuracy and mitigate audit risks. At the outset, an EIG Attorney works with the employer and employee to define the job duties and actual minimum requirements for the position. An EIG attorney then works directly with the foreign national worker to obtain the documentation necessary to show he/she possesses the minimum requirements for the position. EIG’s in-house PERM recruitment team files the prevailing wage determination (PWD) and conducts recruitment under the supervision of the attorney. All steps are carefully reviewed before submission of the PERM application.
