After years of waiting, finally we are seeing the light at the end of tunnel for the PERM regulations.
On December 10, 2004, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), which oversees regulatory policies for the Executive Branch, completed its review of the final PERM rule. This rule had been pending at the OMB since February 23, 2004. After OMB’s review of the Rule, the Rule will be sent for publication on the Federal Register.
The Department of Labor previously indicated in a memo to the State Workforce Agencies that the effective date will be 60 days from the date of publication. As of today, the Rule has not been published yet. Once our office obtains any further news regarding the rules, we will post it on this website.
