Hey waitforever, Your profile shows that your priority date is Apr08 and your processing stage is 485 and your country of chargeability is India. How did you goto 485 in less than in a year?

Congrats people. I guess they stopped or slowed down approving labors in second part of 08. I was told by my lawyer it might take upto 1 year to get labor approved if there is no Query.

Default No idea

What the starter of this thread is trying to say, but it's not what the information on the Fragomen website says. It just says that supervised recruitment is likely to increase.
Scare tactics, maybe he/she got his/her PERM approved in June and wants to cut the bridge now.

I thought DOL was still processing apps from May/June 2008 still. How did your app filed in Nov 2008 get picked?!? What was the basis for rejection?

Attorney has not explained the reason , but i only see the update in theri tracker as Motion to reconsider letter applied to DOL on 2/10, they have not shared the reason yet, scheduled a meeting with them tomorrow. I still have 10 months of h1 left for 6 year full quota, even if i recapture the un-used time i might be able to get another month time.

My wife has cleared the 2 stages but under eb3 with PD Jan 2008.
What options left for me ?

This guy must've had 2 labors pending. The computer matched his earlier labor and later labor, found a mismatch (typical Fragomen practice ) and either denied both or denied one.
So here he is on a forum, where people are desperate to get PERM moving, and who probably are at the end of their wits trying to figure out what the hell is going on, generalizing his specialized case to a group of people with pending PERM.

We have a term for that: sensationalist jackass.

So mr IIT-ian are you a porting attempt candidate?

You are partially correct , partially wrong
first of all I am not porting candidate
Secondly Yes I had two pending labors one from the old company where I used to work , and from the new company where fragomen is the attorney, both of them are fortune 500s , if old company has not cancelled or withdrawn labor after i moved out its not my fault, but the thing is as soon as the old labor got cleared , i got this denial, that where i said u r partially correct. Just because you guys are not in the mess dont call every with what ever name you want to call.

I am not aware of the reason for denial yet, i got appointment with attorney tomorrow so i can tell once it is done

Cause with Fragomen and their less than scrupulous practices of filing PERM (resulting in the petitioner suffering not the law firm) it wouldn't be surprising if DOL did order a supervised recruitment. It does not mean all the non-fragomen cases are tainted. If DOL changes horses in mid-stream like you said without notification, then it's looking at a lawsuit in the works.
You always have the option of joining the company where the labor has cleared. Or is it a shell company?

I can go back to the old company just for GC, but the decision to move the new company I was getting better exposure to domain and getting good chances to prove my skill set, Just for GC i dont want to go back . I just want to find out solution here for the present company , if you cant have any solution , please keep quite but dont blame others , your case is also pending , not to say but if you get into the same stage like me then you feel the pain, tll then u will enjoy the fun, dont assume that all are cheaters etc...

I was not the one who started a thread saying all PERM after June 2008 is going to be rejected. So who's having fun at another's expense here? You or me?
Spreading false information especially in a public forum where other people's careers also hang in the balance might provide some sadistic pleasure to you, but believe me it's not funny.
What I do know is that a new form 9089 is being brought out in March-April 2009 timeframe, with subtle differences compared to the current form. They have not stated anywhere that supervised recruitment is a must for the new form.
Ok now I will be "quite" until you update with information from your attorney-client interview. Please remember not to withhold relevant information using the "attorney-client" privilege clause.
