Navigating the Labor Certification Process in Houston, TX
U.S. companies and organizations that have extended job offers to foreign
nationals must first go through the labor certification process before
that individual can be granted a visa. Simply put, labor certification
ensures the foreign national will receive a fair wage and ensures that
no individuals already in the United States are qualified or willing to
apply for the position. Labor certification involves several complex procedures
and can quickly become overwhelming for employers. Working with a skilled
Houston immigration attorney from Hira Law PLLC can simplify the process.

The Steps Behind Labor Certification
The Department of Labor outlines the following specific actions employers
must take when completing the labor certification process:
Step One: The U.S. company must submit a prevailing wage request to the Department
of Labor. This request explains details about the job, including where
the position will be located. The Department of Labor analyzes the provided
information and responds with a prevailing wage determination.
Step Two: In an effort to prove no one in the U.S. is willing or able to take the
job in question, employers must follow recruitment and advertising guidelines
for the job.
Step Three: The employer can then submit ETA Form 9089 to the Department of Labor.
This form details the position, how the employer recruited for it within
the U.S., along with information regarding the foreign worker the company
hopes to hire.
