On Friday, September 25, 2020, The United States Department of Labor’s (“DOL”) announced that it will permanently implement the electronic issuance of PERM labor certifications (“E-cert PERMs”). In March 2020, the DOL started temporarily issuing E-cert PERMs via e-mail as opposed to U.S. mail due to the COVID-19 pandemic. DOL initially implemented the E-cert PERMs through June 30, 2020 and then extended the program to September 30, 2020. Through this announcement, the DOL is now permanently issuing E-cert PERMs.
