The first PERM case my employer filed for me was denied. If the same employer files another case for me for a different position, will that automatically result in my case being audited?


It is possible to reapply for PERM with the same employer after a denial. That does not guarantee an audit; but keep in mind that a significant percentage of PERM cases – perhaps around 1 out of 3 – are randomly selected for audit. So, even if the case is filed properly, there is a reasonable chance the case could be audited. (11.Jan.2024)
