Search, View Green Card PERM Labor Certification Details, Processing Times History

Most of the individuals planning to apply for Employment Based Green Card need to go through the Permanent (PERM) Labor Certification process with the US Department of Labor.  Employers will file ETA Form 9089, which is called “Application for Permanent Employment Certification”.  While some companies are open and share the details of the Labor Certification, some may not share the details.  It is important to know the details of the PERM Labor Certification, if you are on the Green Card Journey as you need to know the SOC Codes, Wages that were applied, many other details. 

We are launching a new feature to help you search and view the PERM Labor Certification Details. We have data for the last 10 years and plan to add a few more previous years ( 2008, 2009, 2010) as well soon.  The current data for year 2020 is updated as of end of Q3 2020 (June 30, 2020.) DOL is yet to release Q4 data. 

You have the option to either search by the PERM Labor Certification Case Number or browse by Employer, Job title or City. The browse option will give you an idea of the processing times as well.  Let’s look at each of the options.
