Our company filed an H-1B or L-1 petition for the foreign national. Why do we need to complete the Job Summary Sheet and PERM Questionnaire for the position?

Though the H-1B and L-1 petitions each ask for information pertaining to the employer and the position being offered to the foreign national, neither petition requires as extensive information as the PERM process. The PERM process requires significantly more detail about the foreign national's intended job duties, the requirements for the position and his/her experience and education, as well as comprehensive information about the company. The Job Summary Sheet and PERM Questionnaire provide us with the information that is needed to best prepare for a successful outcome.
