Any company that has ever thought about hiring a foreigner will likely know that this will require them to go through the Program Electronic Review Management (PERM) process. This is a somewhat lengthy process that requires a lot of different steps to complete. Plus, it is mandated by the federal government, which means that there is a strict set of rules and PERM advertising requirements that companies in Dallas have to adhere to.
With all these various steps involved, there is a fairly good chance that an employer could make a mistake when creating their immigration advertising in Dallas. This is especially true if the company has never before been involved in this process. That is why it can be so useful to hire an agency to take over the process of creating these immigration ads in Dallas. An agency can also help a business to avoid making the following mistakes, which are by far the most common mistakes that someone makes during the PERM application process.
Choosing the Wrong Newspaper Dates
There are a lot of steps involved in the creation and publication of the advertisements used in this process. One of these most crucial steps that are involved includes publishing the job advertisements in a general circulation newspaper for the area in which the job is going to take place. If this is not done, then the Department of Labor will not end up approving the application.
However, it is not enough to simply place it in a newspaper the one time, it actually needs to be included on two different days. Unfortunately, there are some businesses out there that make the mistake of picking whatever two days they want, which is not the criteria outlined in the application process.
Instead of including the advertisement in whatever two days the business feels like, they need to make sure they are included in Sunday editions of the newspaper. This is when a lot of job seekers are going to be looking through the newspaper for opportunities, which is why the Department of Labor made Sunday the required day.
Therefore, if a business decides to place their advertisement in one Sunday edition but then chooses to place the second one in a Tuesday edition of the newspaper, then they will also have their application denied. An agency will help to ensure that a business is choosing the right days and picking the appropriate newspapers, because these also have various criteria surrounding them.
Entering Incorrect Information on the ETA Form 9089
When entering information into any sort of legal form, it is not unusual for someone to simply overlook something and have it jeopardize the legitimacy of the entire form. However, this becomes a major issue when completing the ETA Form 9089 for this process because it is such a lengthy ordeal and even the simplest of mistakes can result in a business having to start the process all over again.
In many cases, companies believe that they are only going to be in trouble if they enter completely wrong information on their various forms. However, even minor issues such as a misspelling of the company name or being one digit off on the individual’s address are often enough for the Department of Labor to reject the ETA Form 9089 altogether.
That is why it is so important that not only is a business taking their time when entering the information in the first place, but they are also putting in the effort to recheck everything included in the form to make sure that it is completely accurate. In fact, it is recommended that an employer get someone else at the company or a professional agency to look over the details of the form at least once or twice to make sure that they have not overlooked anything that could potentially get their entire application rejected.
Not Filling Out Email Questionnaire
The average employer likely receives upward of 100 emails every single day. Therefore, it can be difficult to keep track of a single email in this sea of online correspondence. However, when someone is completing this process, they need to make sure they keep a close eye on their inbox because at some point the Department of Labor is going to send emails that the employer needs to respond to.
The perfect example of this is after the company submits its ETA form 9089 to the Department of Labor. At this point, they should receive an email from the government shortly afterward that contains an online link to a questionnaire that must be filled out. Although this questionnaire is short and relatively simple, it serves a very important purpose and failing to fill it out can result in the entire application being denied.
By completing this questionnaire, it allows the Department of Labor to know that the employer is genuinely trying to complete this process and the submission of the form was not a mistake or some type of hacking. The employer also only has seven days to complete this questionnaire, which is why it is so important that they carefully scan their inbox to keep track of when they first receive the email from the Department of Labor.
Keeping Copies of Various Documentations
There are a lot of different documents involved in this process and unfortunately, some companies tend to discard or misplace some of these forms and other legal documents that they had to fill out during the application process. However, it is crucial that every employer make sure to keep copies of all their documentation during this process for up to five years after the initial submission of the ETA form 9089.
This does not just include copies of this form but also copies of the advertisement, the resumes that they received in response to it, and much more. Without having copies of this for up to five years afterward, it can result in the business receiving some very extreme penalties from the Department of Labor.
