AILA's Comment on PERM

Cite as “Posted on AILA InfoNet, Doc. No. 02070844 (July 08, 2002 ).”

Recently, AILA maintained that, "while the concept of PERM is laudable, its execution as expressed in this proposal is completely unworkable. Electronic filing is the wave of the future, and one that DOL should embrace. But exclusively electronic adjudication, where the standards necessarily involve thought and analysis, would doom the program to failure. Promoting an automated process at the expense of business' flexibility is completely unacceptable. But this does not mean that PERM is doomed to the trash heap. An agile program is possible, as long as DOL keeps some thought and analysis in the process. AILA hopes that the alternatives proposed herein will assist DOL in developing a responsive and workable PERM system."
