DOL Auditing Business Existence During PERM Process

Immigration attorneys are reporting Department of Labor PERM audits which request evidence of Business Existence, such as tax returns, business licenses, leases, incorporation paperwork, etc. Such requests appear in the body of the audit itself or as an attachment. The PERM audit Business Existence Requests are not the Business Existence requests in the original PERM registration process. This may be a trend or it may be isolated reports. We recommend employers respond to the audit as you would normally and in a timely manner.

The most common form of green card sponsorship through employment is PERM labor certification. The first employment visas to the US are usually nonimmigrant visas. Because they take less time to obtain. We have assisted thousands of people and we file hundreds of nonimmigrant and immigrant petitions every year. Below is information about the PERM process and Litwin & Smith.

We are very successful in preparing labor certifications and subsequent immigrant visas and green cards for employees. We prepare many of such petitions each year. Currently, the Department of Labor is randomly auditing about 40% of the PERM labor certification filings. Although we cannot guarantee your filing will not be audited, our PERM filings are seldom audited by the DOL.

Perhaps this is because we prepare our filings with an audit in mind. Unlike most firms who only prepare an audit file after they receive an audit notice, we believe that preparing paying attention to all the details results in our lack of audits.
