A few years ago, my I-140 was approved in the EB2 category as a Software Engineer. I have now been promoted to a managerial position within the same company. Does my employer need to redo the entire PERM process now?


If there has been a material change to the nature of the position, that typically would require filing a new labor certification and I-140 petition for that new position. Fortunately, however, if you have an approved I-140, you should be able to retain the priority date. (22.Nov.2023)
