Employment-Based Labor Certifications in Dallas

Put Years of Experience in Your Corner

A PERM labor certification is required by all employers who are seeking to bring foreign nationals into the U.S. for the purpose of employment. This is the first step in the employment-based visa process. The employer must submit an application to the Department of Labor demonstrating the need for the foreign worker's skill and how that skill cannot be replicated by a U.S. worker. The purpose of this process is to protect U.S. workers from being adversely affected by the introduction of foreign labor.

When an employer wants to sponsor a foreign worker for a green card, the employer must undergo a three-step process:

  • Obtain Alien Labor Certification through the PERM process
  • I-140 Immigration Petition for Alien Worker
  • I-485 Application for Adjustment of Status (Green Card)

PERM Labor Certification Requirements-

The PERM Labor Certification process can begin when all requirements are fulfilled. Both the employer and prospective employee have certain obligations that must be fulfilled.

Requirements for PERM labor certification:

  • The employee must be hired full-time by the U.S. employer
  • The position must be a bona fide job offer that is also available to U.S. workers
  • The job qualifications must be standard and not tailored specifically for the foreign worker.
  • The wage for the position must meet prevailing wage requirements (equal or greater than the average wage for those similarly employed)
  • The employer must show that there are no qualified U.S. workers available for the job and that hiring the foreign worker will not negatively impact U.S. workers

    I want to thank Akula & Associates for helping me adjust my status. After seeing many law firms in the Dallas area, this firm was the ONLY firm that gave me hope. I was able to adjust my status in record time. I want to especially thank lawyer Kathy Brady for working hard on my case. She was very patient and hard working. She was the only one that gave me hope when many other lawyers didn’t. Thank you again!

    "Timely response, dedication towards the work"

    We are an IT consulting firm. Kavitha helped us to get critical H1 case approvals and saved employees from running out of status which leads them to travel to their home country permanently. Timely response, dedication towards the work, having proper immigration knowledge, solving cases with logical thoughts, and the best team are the positives. Thanks!

    "I truly love their staff!"
    My journey started with Akula & Associates exactly 10 months ago. Came to know about them through a friend, casually called, impressed with their profile and signed up contract for services. Last 10 months we filed several cases and each case they treat like a completely new customer and examine each document thoroughly, advise and make us on top of the things. I truly say sincere THANKS for their great service. I truly love their staff. My paralegal Yezenia is awesome, attorney Toki is wonderful. Yet to work more with GC team, Shirin and Christie, great work experience so far. Last but not least Attorney Kavitha is Great!!! I hope I get the same level of service for me and employees for coming years!!! Good luck to Akula & Associates !!
