Permanent Electronic Review Management
(PERM) System

Under the new PERM System, which went into effect March 28, 2005, the state’s role in the Foreign Labor Certification (FLC) process is limited to the following two functions:


    Employers and employer representatives must complete the Request for Prevailing Wage Determination Form and fax it to the Nebraska Prevailing Wage Determination Specialist at (402) 471-2022. Nebraska’s Prevailing Wage Specialist will determine the prevailing wage and fax it back to the employer or attorney representative within 14 days of receipt (usually sooner; private surveys may take up to 30 days). The Prevailing Wage Determination issued by Nebraska for filing applications and attestations will be valid for at least 90 days but no more than one year from the date of the determination.


    Posting job orders in Nebraska JobLink. There are two options:

    Option 1:

    Employers may use our self-service option to post job orders in Nebraska JobLink. Employers must first register as a user and get approval to post job orders in Nebraska JobLink. Approval will be granted within two days. Employers can post their job order while registering; however, the job posting will not be displayed in Nebraska JobLink until their registration is approved. Job seekers must be instructed to send their resumes directly to the employer. Attorney representatives must have an agreement with the employer they represent prior to posting. The Nebraska Workforce Development, Department of Labor (NWD-DOL) will not forward resumes or referrals to employers when this self serve option is used. Click here for instructions on using Nebraska JobLink.

    SPECIAL NOTE: Attorney representatives may register in Nebraska JobLink on behalf of each employer they represent and enter the job order on behalf of their employer client. Registration is required only once but attorney representatives must register separately for each employer they represent.

    After posting a job order, employers and attorney representatives must note the job order number (it starts with a “J”) and print out the job posting for their records the following day. Employers may specify a job posting expiration date. The default expiration is 90 days from the date of posting.

    Employers are strongly encouraged to use Option 1 in placing job orders in order to avoid possible delays in the recruitment process.

    Option 2:

    Employers and attorney representatives may complete the Job Order Form and fax it to the FLC Office at (402) 471 2022. The FLC Office will enter the job order and it will be displayed in Nebraska JobLink the following day. The NWD-DOL will send employers/attorney representatives a copy of the job postings. Job seekers will be directed to send all resumes to the employer. NWD-DOL Career Center staff may also forward resumes or referrals to the employer by doing job matching on behalf of registered job seekers in their system. The FLC Office will not forward resumes to the employer. Questions regarding referrals made from the Career Center should be directed to the appropriate Career Center.
