The first question: We represent a large number of small restaurant owners who want to extend offers of employment for qualified alien beneficiaries. Many of them do not have an email address. How can we file the ETA 9089 for them electronically? For example, are we allowed to set up an email address for them if we are duly-authorized to do so? The system warns that this is restricted to employers only.

The second question: In cases of foreign specialty cooks, do you still need to answer 'yes' to question H-10 asking whether experience in an alternative occupation is acceptable? If the answer to that question is 'no', would that be fatal to the application?

Answer by Joel Stewart:

E-mail addresses for Employers -- I think you should take the warnings seriously. The attorney or agent should not handle this for the Employer. The computer with IP address should not be one that belongs to the attorney. We had this problem recently and insisted that the Employer establish an e-mail. The Employer found a business next door in the shopping plaza with a computer -- opened an e-mail account and registered to file the PERM case. Alternatively, the Employer can go to an Internet Cafe to register the PERM case.

(b) Specialty Cooks -- what do you mean "do you still have to answer Yes"......Who said you have to answer "Yes"? I didn't understand this question.
