The Office of Foreign Labor Certification is poised to implement changes to the Permanent Labor Certification (PERM) application process.
Background: The switch to the new filing process had been set to take effect May 11, but OFLC announced earlier this month that the change would be postponed to June 1. OFLC said it used the extra time in part to establish procedures that will allow filers to link prevailing wage determinations to a PERM application in cases where users no longer have access to the FLAG account from which the prevailing wage request was submitted. Information on this option can be found in the addendum to the Form ETA 9089 User Guide on the PERM program page on FLAG.
BAL Analysis: BAL continues to work closely with clients in preparation for the June 1 changes to the PERM application process. The submission process and form were designed to streamline PERM; however, technical challenges and delays in the transition period should be expected. BAL will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
