The Hurdle of Sponsoring a Family Member for PERM
A familial relationship is not necessarily fatal to an employer’s PERM filing, but it increases scrutiny of the PERM process by the Department of Labor (“DOL”). When the employer has properly disclosed the familial relationship on their Form 9089, also known as the “PERM Application”, the DOL typically requires a full inspection of the case that includes requests for additional information. To overcome the scrutiny, the employer must establish that there is a bona fide job opportunity for U.S. workers and that the employee did not have any undue influence in the recruitment process in accordance with 20 CFR §656.20(c)(8). The DOL considers various factors to determine whether there is a bona fide job opportunity, such as control and influence over hiring decisions, ownership interest, management involvement, number of employees, job requirements, and more.
