Special Handling cases are employer-sponsored labor certification applications which are limited to teaching positions at qualified educational institutions. Many of the restrictive elements of the normal PERM process are absent in Special Handling, which provides a great PERM option for teaching positions at accredited institutions of higher education. Special Handling recruitment and advertising are unique to the reality of the traditional applicant selection process at universities and colleges. Rather than testing a local job market with advertisements in newspapers and state workforce agency job postings, Special Handling recruitment is nation-wide to ensure the best applicant for the position is selected. While it is possible to file a regular PERM petition for a teacher at a university or college, Special Handling is specially designed to make the PERM process easier for such positions. This section will briefly address the “Special Handling” procedures. Interested faculty members should feel free their questions to Info@YBZLawOffices.com.
