GC "On-the-job" experience for contractor-to-permanent employee

Recommended Posts

I have been working as a contractor in a US Bank for last 6 years. During this time, I was full time employee of the contracting firm. Last year, my bank converted me to Full Time Employee of the bank and now is ready to file my Green Card Perm.

For the PERM, will my experience with the bank (as contractor) not counted at all ? Does that mean that my PERM application cannot have last 6 years of experience (working with the bank as contractor but getting salary through my contracting firm)?

Of course you will have experience no matter what. However, on paper you were employed for other contractor company. You cannot list that experience for US Bank, although job experience is same. But, it doesn't act against you and you will be eligible for same category of visa (EB or EB-3) as if you were employed for same employer.

Experience is experience. It counts for the GC.

It won't count for seniority at the bank because you weren't an employee of the bank.
