OFLC announced that beginning March 25, 2020, through June 30, 2020, the Atlanta National Processing Center (NPC) will issue PERM labor certification documents, including the certified Form ETA-9089 and Final Determination letter, electronically to employers and their authorized attorneys or agents in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In circumstances where employers or, if applicable, their authorized attorneys or agents, are not able to receive the certified Form ETA-9089 documents by email, OFLC will send the original security paper Form ETA-9089 and Final Determination letter using UPS regular delivery.
Upon email receipt of an electronic copy of the certified Form ETA-9089, the form must be printed, and then signed and dated by each of the following prior to filing the Form I-140 with USCIS: the foreign worker, preparer (if applicable), and the employer. USCIS may consider this printed Form ETA-9089, containing all signatures, as satisfying the requirement that petitioners provide evidence of an original labor certification issued by DOL.
