Fees Associated with EB-2 PERM Labor Certification (For Staff)

Departments interested in sponsoring Brandeis employees for employment-based permanent residency should be aware that fees in Stage 1 and Stage 2 of the process must be paid by the employer.

Please note that in most cases, the employee is responsible for all fees associated with adjustment of status. In the case that the university covers such costs, the expense is treated as an employee benefit and the employee is taxed accordingly.
