AILA's Focus on EB-2 & EB-3 Degree Equivalency provides a comprehensive resource on EB-2 visa requirements (for professionals with advanced degrees or exceptional ability in the sciences, arts, or business) and EB-3 visa requirements (for skilled workers, professionals, and other workers). In particular, it focuses on how to design degree requirements for PERM applications and anticipate common issues that arise in previously approved labor certification applications.
Additionally, a separate supplement publication is available to complement this edition.
"Degree equivalency issues have undergone substantial evolution since the publication of the original book; the supplement provides a full and up to date portrait of today's degree equivalency landscape. Because degree equivalency is a crucial component of properly structuring job requirements for PERM labor certification applications, an attorney's failure to properly anticipate a degree equivalency issue can sit dormant and undetected for months or years, then derail a green card process downstream, often at a time when options for remedies are extremely limited. Failure to detect a degree equivalency issue during case intake can create false expectations and disappointed clients." - Ron Wada, author
