If your company is sponsoring a PERM petition for one of its employees, we will need the following documents and information regarding the company, the position being offered, and the job recruitment. (Please note, if the employer is a college/university and will be sponsoring a PERM Special Handling petition, there is a separate checklist.)

If you have 10 or fewer employees, then the Department of Labor may question whether the employee you are sponsoring has ""influence and control over the job opportunity." To be ready for this, please send us:
- A copy of the articles of incorporation, partnership agreement, business license or similar documents that establish the business entity;
- A list of all corporate/company officers and shareholders/partners, and also current employees. Did any of them have a family relationship to the sponsored employee?
