Qualifying Criteria for the 
 Labor Certification Process


For a labor certification application to succeed, the following elements must be in place:

  • The employer must hire the foreign worker as a full-time employee;

  • There must be a bona fide job opening;

  • Job requirements must adhere to what is customarily required for the occupation in the U.S. and may not be tailored to the worker's qualifications. In addition, the employer shall document that the job opportunity has been and is being described without unduly restrictive job requirements, unless adequately documented as arising from business necessity.

  • The employer must pay at least the prevailing wage for the occupation in the area of intended employment.
