I'm sorry if this has been talked about before. Is it true that once you start the perm process you are stuck with your company till you get a green card? If you want to switch in the middle of the process do you have to start with perm all over again? I've tried to read about this but there is so much confusing info.

Once you have an approved i140 or if your 140 has been pending for over 180 days, you can change employer But they have to restart your PERM process. You Will retain your Priority date among all these changes. If you are rest of world, where you generally get an approved green card within two years time, it doesn't make as much sense to switch jobs at this point because the whole Perm process take much longer since covid. Once you file 485 which is adjustment of status, you can't change jobs in the first 180 days. After that you can port your case to a mew employer who has to file a 485j which is to verify your employment with them. Mind you that all these above mentionings of employer switching, you are still bound by the initial job descriptions approved in your perm. Your new jobs have to be similar.
