PERM

PERM is the Program Electronic Review Management system developed by the U.S. Department of Labor to replace the previous labor certification program. Labor certification is required of U.S. employers seeking to employ foreign citizens on a permanent basis. The new program was proposed with the goal of creating a more streamlined system to verify that there are no U.S. workers able, willing and qualified to fill a permanent position that is being offered to a foreign national.
