The number of foreign-born people counted in the United States population from 2013-2014 increased by about 2.5 percent. From 2014 to the present, the number of immigrants in the U.S. equals 26 percent. Many of these people arrived here because of PERM recruitment ads.
PERM recruitment ads are usually posted after already having promoted job opportunities to U.S. citizens. These permanent labor certification ads are usually also posted after a company has applied for a PERM certification, and nowadays the application process usually takes place online. Some businesses, however, might instead mail in a paper application to the participating agency.
In either case, hiring immigrant workers usually requires a series of steps. This entire practice also normally takes anywhere from several months to a few years. Many variables contribute to how fast companies can hire foreign workers, and the same is true of the employees. Both employers and employees have to follow through with providing proof of legal right to hire people or for hired people to work in the U.S.
Documentation for employers is provided in a variety of ways. For instance, every legitimate business is usually registered within their local community. They also usually have prior tax forms or other evidence of operating within a specific industry. Companies also usually submit their work orders according to the job descriptions and salary being offered as set by the Department of Labor. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, State Workforce Agency and National Prevailing Wage Center sites also provide information to employers.
Employees, on the other hand, typically are required to provide information about their former place of birth, disclosure of family relationships, and photo identification. Additional documentation might also be needed throughout the process in order to protect the employee from being accused of fraud.
In any case, the proper writing of PERM recruitment ads usually is one of the ways that employers can prevent deportation. Making sure they make U.S. workers a priority first before offering jobs to foreigners is another way to prove legitimacy. Most employers usually comply with immigration regulations if they intend to hire only legal immigrants not illegal ones.
