Same here, this is the first time, i hear that filing status is dictated by DOL.
I mean the immigration team of Cognizant says my documents are good so far, but are refusing to do the PERM since they are not in filing cycle.

In case, we max out and are supposed to relocate outside US, what are the options available? I am a part of their US hiring program.
Any suggestion is appreciated

I was recruited as US hire on July 2011 and I will be Maxing out on Aug 2014. I had initiated the GC process about 9 months ago and still they have not done the PERM yet.

This is what they had to say

Dear Christopher

Cognizant is not in a filing cycle at this time and thats the reason there is no update on your case. We cannot confirm when the next filing cycle will be. This can be anywhere from a few months to several months down the line. During this time period, GIT will continue to review cases, but will not be able to provide an exact filing date or EB filing category. You will be contacted by a team member once Cognizant is closer to an filing window so we can complete the assessment for EB filing at that time.

Dear Ajay,

When you say it will take several months down the line, by then I would then max out. What would be the case then? I am already nearing to go under a year of max-out. When I was hired as a part of NA hire, I was told that my GC would be processed after a year of completion.
It's almost 9 months since I have initiated the GC processing.

Thanks
Chris

Dear Christopher

Apologize for the inconvenience caused. We cannot file the perm application now with DOL and there is no exception in this. This is because, Cognizant is redesigning our PERM program in light of recent governmental changes that employers are facing across the U.S. As a result, your PERM application has not yet been submitted.

Dear Ajay,
Thanks for the update. I had a question, what if my VISA was to max out in a month or say 3 months time. Does that mean that Cognizant will not apply PERM for that concerned individual at all?
Thanks
Chris

Dear Christopher

Even if you near a maxout date, we cannot file perm application with DOL if the filing cycle does not starts. We cannot do anything on this since it is due to DOL requirements.

Dear Ajay,

Does this mean that the filing cycle is decided by the DOL? Is this same across all the employers?

Thanks
Chris

Dear Christopher

Yes, the filing cycle is decided by DOL and it is not same across all employers. This may differ for other employers.

Topic: Question regarding PERM Process for Cognizant Employees

Recently I got a reply from Cognizant that they were refreshing their PERM process and hence will not be filing any PERM applications atleast until end of Q4. Is anyone having this issue or has anyone has their PERM filed recently?
