DOL Alerts on PERM Data entry Problems

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

On Tuesday, September 1, 2015, the Department implemented software updates to the Permanent Labor Certification Case Management System (CMS). An unexpected programming glitch occurred which impacted a small number of applications and resulted in the prohibition of certain information being entered onto the ETA Form 9089. The Department is working to correct this issue.

Until the revisions become operational, an employer who cannot complete and file an ETA Form 9089 online should mail in their application to the Atlanta National Processing Center at the following address:

U.S. Department of Labor
Employment and Training Administration
Office of Foreign Labor Certification
Atlanta National Processing Center
Harris Tower, Suite 410
233 Peachtree Street
Atlanta, Georgia 30303

Employers, who attempted to submit an online application between Tuesday, September 1, 2015, and Friday, September 11, 2015, only, are authorized to provide documentation establishing that information in their ETA Form 9089 was impacted.

If you elect to provide documentation with the ETA Form 9089, please include a cover page containing the words "September 2015, CMS Technical Issue" in the center of the page in large letters. All documentation in response to this letter must be submitted by September 30, 2015, to the following:

U.S. Department of Labor
Employment and Training Administration
Office of Foreign Labor Certification
Attn: CMS Technical Issue Team
Atlanta National Processing Center
Harris Tower, Suite 410
