The requirement of a labor certification can be waived if it is in the National Interest. To qualify for the National Interest Waiver, the applicant must demonstrate (1) that he or she is working in a field of substantial national importance, (2) the promised benefits of his or her work are national in scope and (3) the applicant, by virtue of his or her personal accomplishments in the field can better serve the National Interest than a U.S. worker with the same qualifications.
Attorney Paul Herzog delves into the details of the National Interest Green Card application in the prominent immigration publication, Interpreter Releases (Read "The National Interest Waiver: Understanding Its History and Navigating Its Terrain" here).
