EB-3 For Employers

Do you have trouble staffing lesser-skilled positions? Are you struggling with high turnover?

We guide employers through a Department of Labor/immigration program that many employers do not know about called PERM. We have gone out of our way to simplify and expedite a fairly tedious government process for employers and have created a solution that is scalable, allowing you to hire many workers at once.

We do everything we can to minimize the costs involved here for employers. While the costs are not zero, the per-employee cost to the company here might well be below your typical employee procurement cost now.

We are able to work with employers in all industries and our current clients include employers in the janitorial and buildings services, home health care, packing/shipping, and delivery/trucking industries, among others. Simultaneously, we have an extensive network of immigration clients both around the world and already in the US (with work authorization, but without long-term ability to remain here) who are eager to fill positions in a wide range of fields.

If you would like to discuss the program and see if it can help solve you staffing problems, please call us at 703-885-0637.

We will explain the basics of the process below. For an even more detailed outline of the expectations, timeline and overall process, please email info@aiilaw.com

  1. We will file for what is called a “Prevailing Wage Determination” with the Department of Labor. This is required because an employer must pay any worker hired through this program a wage commensurate with its other entry-level employees, but also not below what would be considered typical for its industry.
  2. At the same time, we may begin advertising the positions in the area where they are located via a newspaper ad, on a state-run job board and at the main work site. Yes, we know that few people use newspapers anymore, but the laws surrounding this process were created in the 90’s and have not been updated.
  3. Once you select the workers, we file an application with the Department of Labor to certify that an open position exists for them.
  4. US Citizenship & Immigration Services and the Department of State then review the position and processes for program compliance and conduct a background check on the workers.
  5. If the worker has been outside the U.S. during this process, they can now join you and fill the position for which they are hired.

We know this sounds long and complicated, but we have gone out of our way to make this as easy for employers as we can. We are legally able to handle almost all portions of the process for you and we have a staff at our office devoted to making life as easy as possible for our clients.
