Priority check

German: Vorrangprüfung

In some cases, the Federal Employment Agency has to check whether there are job applicants with priority rights over migrants. This means investigating whether or not an actual vacancy can be filled by a job-seeker in Germany. This criterion is considered to have been satisfied if the employer can prove that there are no suitable applicants among the priority unemployed.
