Labor Certification Under PERM - Frequently Asked Questions


What is meant by the ‘employer's being able to place the alien on the payroll’ under § 656.10(c)(4)? How does it differ from having funds available to pay the alien's wage or salary in § 656.10(c)(3)?

The employer may be required, depending on the circumstances, to establish that the position offered is actually available at the time of the alien's proposed entrance into the U.S. For example, the employer may be asked to provide evidence that a plant or restaurant, which is in the planning stage or under construction at the time the application is filed, will be completed at the time of the alien's proposed entrance into the U.S. While the employer may be fiscally able to pay the alien, other circumstances, such as non-viability of the business itself, may preclude the employer from placing the alien on the payroll.


Can notices of filing for college and university teachers recruited under the competitive recruitment and selection process be posted after the selection process has been completed?

Yes, for college and university teachers, notices of filing may be posted after the selection process has been completed. An application for a college or university teacher may be filed up to 18 months after the selection is made and a notice of filing must be provided between 30 and 180 days prior to filing the application either by providing notice to the bargaining representative, if one exists, or by posting notice at the facility or location of employment.

Must the ten consecutive business days posting of the notice of filing timeframe end at least 30 days prior to filing?

Yes, the last day of the posting must fall at least 30 days prior to filing in order to provide sufficient time for interested persons to submit, if they so choose, documentary evidence bearing on the application.


What address must the employer provide on the posted notice of filing?

The employer must provide the address of the Certifying Officer for the Atlanta National Processing Centers.
