Immigration Law Attorney Serving Louisiana PERM Labor Certifications

PERM Labor Certification

Call Our Louisiana Immigration Lawyer (337) 214-0670

Through Program Electronic Review Management (PERM), certain foreign nationals are able to obtain labor certification and take a step towards an employment-based immigrant visa. In order to qualify for the PERM process, an employer must test the current labor market to find U.S. citizens or permanent residents who are able, willing, and qualified to work a certain job. If sufficient evidence is shown that there are none available, the employer may then submit a PERM labor certification application in order to bring in foreign workers for labor.

If you are an employer and need guidance with the program, contact our PERM labor certification lawyer in Louisiana online or call (337) 214-0670. ¡Hablamos Español!

Below are the requirements to obtain PERM Labor Certification:

  • The position that is being offered is a full-time job that is available to U.S. workers
  • The job is not tailored to the alien worker's qualifications
  • The offered wage must be equal to or greater than the prevailing wage for the occupation
  • There are no other U.S. workers who are qualified, available, and willing to accept the job

  • This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends

    “We have been using this office since 2014. They have helped us from adjusting my husbands status from his overstayed visa, to getting his travel permit, green card, and now his citizenship! They were able to pretty much do everything for us to where we only needed to submit documents and stay in contact. They made the entire process smooth and quick for us. They helped put our minds at ease when we were worried what could happen while we wait. Very good with quick response times! Very friendly staff! Both Ashley & Jeb were amazing to us and worked closely with us throughout the process! Maria & Josue were our main contacts throughout this as well and were just friendly and always answered my questions. Karen & Ann were amazing with working out payment arrangements for us during a difficult time of a new baby. This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends who will need to go through these things as well! Thanks for all your help!”
