The Labor Department’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) has announced it will permanently adopt a recent policy of issuing PERM labor certification documents electronically.
Background: The OFLC initially introduced the electronic issuance policy on March 24 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and extended the temporary policy once before making it permanent.
BAL Analysis: The permanent shift to electronic PERM issuance is welcome news for employers. Employers are reminded to safe list email@example.com to ensure receipt of electronic PERM documents. A July 30 inter-agency memorandum of agreement allows the Department of Homeland Security to access all PERM applications submitted to the Department of Labor through the online system, providing greater government oversight of employer compliance with wage and other labor certification requirements.
