[b][PROVO, 02/15/2018][/b] - Foreign workers in the United States can stay and work permanently through Program Electronic Return Management (PERM) labor certification. Buhler Thomas Law, P.C. ensures that every foreign worker applying for this certification receives guidance throughout the entire process.
[b]Expert Advice for a Complex Process[/b]
While the PERM system allows foreign nationals to take the first step in the green card process, every step is different and can confuse any applicant. Buhler Law Office brings clarity to the process.
Buhler Thomas Law, P.C. explains, “The application filing is in the hands of the employer, but it is also important for the employee to understand the process. At Kim H. Buhler, Attorney at Law, P.C., we utilize our nearly two decades of immigration law experience to guide you through each step.”
PERM labor certification includes two crucial steps: the U.S. Labor Market Test and Prevailing Wage Determination.

Buhler Thomas Law, P.C. explains the two prerequisites for permanent labor certification. The law office shares, “Permanent labor certification can only be issued if: there is no adverse effect on the job opportunities or working conditions of current U.S. employees and there are not sufficient United States employees available to complete the job.”
Through the U.S. Labor Market Test, the employer determines if there are any able, willing, and qualified U.S. workers for the position offered to the foreign national.
During this stage, employers advertise the position and review résumés for more than 30 days before filing the application to ensure that no other qualified U.S. workers are available. If no other qualified U.S. worker takes the job, the labor certification process begins.
Meanwhile, applicants must obtain prevailing wage determination from the Department of Labor (DOL) first before filing their PERM application.
Each step requires legal assistance, especially if the foreign national is not familiar with U.S. immigration law. For the legal aspect of the application process, Buhler Thomas Law, P.C. can offer sound legal advice and expertise.
