US Department of Labor publishes Request for Information on PERM Schedule A revisions

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of Labor today published a Request for Information so the public can provide input on whether to revise the list of Schedule A job classifications that do not require permanent labor certifications.

Guided by President Biden’s Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence, the department invites input from the public — including industry and worker-advocate communities — to identify artificial intelligence and other STEM-related occupations, as well as additional occupations across the economy where an insufficient number of qualified and available U.S. workers exists.

The RFI provides the public a way to offer input on whether or how the department may establish a reliable, objective and transparent methodology to respond to national labor shortages, consistent with the requirements of the Immigration and Nationality Act. 

The department encourages the public to submit written comments in response to this request following publication in the Federal Register.
