State Workforce Authority/ SWA Job Order:
A “mandatory” step in the PERM process is to register the prospective employer at the relevant State Workforce Authority. This can be done on-line at any one of the State controlled websites, all of whom have a Job Order page.
AILA members also have the added benefit of getting the documents in PDF form from the AILA website’s on-line library.
If you are an Employer (Petitioner), or Attorney / Law Firm, and would like our firm to place a SWA Job Order in any State on the Employer’s behalf for the purposes of completing recruitment for a PERM Labor Certification, please fill out our simple PERM Ad Quote Request Form. This form is also on this page to the right of this text.
Our staff will reply back with the necessary information to get this done immediately, or within your required case schedule.
For interested State Authorities, We Do Not Charge For SWA Job Orders but rather the service of coordination and evidential documentation of the postings.
Requirements for filing a SWA Job Order:
Company FEIN (Federal Employment Identification Number)
Company address, job response contact, email & phone:
This information is required in order to register the sponsoring company before the actual SWA Job Order, and is usually not displayed, as the electronic filing procedure allows it to be suppressed, in order to afford the employer a choice as to how respondents contact the employer. SWA Registration allows an employer to post/edit/manage SWA Job Orders in that particular state.
Education, Training, Job Experience:
Please list in detail the relevant requirements for this job if they are not already specified in the ad text.
UIN (Unemployment Insurance Number)
Every SWA refers to this number differently. As an example, this number is referred to in California as an EDD# (Employment Development Department). It can range from 5-9 digits. It is usually required by most states to complete their Online registration.
Salary & Benefits
Whenever possible please include the salary on all requests. It may not be required for a particular state, but when it is, the electronic filing cannot be completed unless an actual number is specified. Benefits do not need to be listed, but it’s good to keep in mind the general benefits package.
