In 2020, my I-140 was approved for a position as a Senior Engineer. My employer recently promoted me to Engineering Manager. Does the company need to file a new PERM case for me?


If there has been a material change to the nature of the position (as described on the ETA9089 form) that typically would require a new PERM labor certification and I-140 petition for that new position. Given that you have an approved I-140, however, you should be able to retain the priority date. (16.May.2023)
