PERM Labor Certifications

New Rules for PERM Labor Certifications verification

OFLC has confirmed to AILA that it has modified the deadline by which employers must respond to the sponsorship confirmation email following the filing of a PERM application. Employers traditionally have had seven days to confirm sponsorship, but that has now been extended to 30 days. If a response is not received within the first seven days, the system will automatically send a reminder email to the employer reminding them that they have 23 days left in which to confirm sponsorship. OFLC has revised the sponsorship email to reflect the new extended deadlines.
