Employers who decide to file their applications by mail under the PERM program will send their applications to one of two Processing Centers in Atlanta and Chicago. Until March 27, 2005 employers must continue to submit applications for permanent alien labor certification to State Workforce Agencies. On and after March 28, 2005 employers must file under PERM, and are encouraged to file applications electronically as those applications will be processed faster than those filed via mail.  AMDOC#: 200502015
