"PERM Pointers, Pitfalls And Puzzles"
When filing an I-140 with an approved PERM Labor cert. Which one of
the following will be acceptable?
Answer by Catherine Haight:
It depends on what is required on the 9089. If a Bachelorís degree is required, then you need the stand alone equiv without work exp UNLESS the 9089 stated that a Bachelorís OR EQUIVALENT is required and the equivalent is defined in a manner that includes work experience.
Answer by Elizabeth Reichard:
I agreee with Catherine on this one. It depends what is listed on the 9089. It is always best to have a stand alone evaluation though, so as to avoid confusion. Please note that if you state "Equivalent," you shoud define it. If experience enables the person to have a BA equivalent, that needs to be explicitly stated on the application.
