Ever wonder what’s going on with your PERM case?  DOL finally updated processing times during a recent stakeholders meeting with AILA:

Clean cases (non-audited cases) filed on or before June 2008 are being processed.

Audited cases filed on or before August 2007 are being processed.

Denied cases that were subsequently appealed are being processed according to the original filing date.  They are currently working on appealed cases filed on or before April 2007. 

One gem that DOL did release is that when the new PERM system is implemented (ETA July 1, 2009), there will be a login mechanism for employees to check the status of their labor certification case.  Stay tuned for more!
