The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) updates its processing or adjudication times for PERM labor certification applications usually each month on its website. Employers and employees can check this website to gauge where DOL's processing stands in relation to PERM labor certification cases already filed. As of January 31, 2010, DOL was processing regular, unaudited labor certification cases that were filed in April 2009. The standard processing time for regular unaudited labor certifications remains steady at approximately 10 months. For audited cases, DOL is deciding cases that were submitted in December 2007, which remains unchanged since last month and which increases the audited case processing time to approximately 25 months.
