The publication of AILA's PERM Labor Certification Survival Guide coincides with the 10th anniversary of the PERM labor certification program. Although the 2005 regulation remains for the most part intact, new questions of law are constantly emerging as industry recruitment standards continue to shift.

To help you maneuver through this rapidly aging program, AILA's PERM Survival Guide serves as a vital resource to PERM practice pending DOL's modernization of the program.

The articles in this resource provide updated guidance on the most critical aspects of the PERM process, including:

  • PERM pathway to permanent residency
  • Establishment of minimum job requirements
  • Unusual travel requirements
  • Prevailing wage issues and recruitment requirements
  • A detailed dissection of the ETA Form 9089
  • PERM audits including a discussion of known audit triggers
  • Supervised recruitment
  • PERM appeals
  • Ethical issues pertaining to PERM Practice
