Thread: Statistics Regarding the PERM Labor Certification Processing

  1. #1
    The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently issued statistics regarding the PERM labor certification processing. These statistics provide further insight into the backlogs and approval rates by the DOL on PERM cases. The summary is that there are over 50,000 PERM cases pending for processing and a substantial number of PERM cases are being audited by the DOL. Only about one in three cases is being approved or certified by the DOL.

    This stage of the permanent residency, or "green card," process is critical and an appreciation of its complexities and nuances will help both employers and employees to be better prepared.

    The statistics reflect that the number of cases received in the last quarter of 2008, October-December, far outweighed the number of cases resolved. The applications received totaled just over 20,700, and the completed cases for the same time frame totaled 4,571. The DOL reports that about 53,200 pending PERM cases were with them as of the end of December 2008. Of these, 26 percent are undergoing audits.

    The DOL's released statistics reveal the number of filings received as well as the results of those filings, that were broken down as certified, denied, or withdrawn. The cumulative approval rate since the program began in March 2005 is 76 percent. The approval rate for the last quarter of calendar year 2008, however, was 67 percent. It is not clear if the change is a result of the economy or of additional auditing.
