Welcome to the Labor Certification Registry
The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) entrusts specific responsibilities to the U.S. Secretary of Labor for the administration of certain employment-based immigration programs that require a labor certification. These statutory and regulatory provisions require all employers seeking a labor certification for either permanent or temporary nonimmigrant employment to first apply to the Secretary of Labor for certification.

OFLC processes labor certification applications for employers seeking to bring foreign workers into the U.S. and grants certifications in those cases where employers can demonstrate that there are not sufficient U.S. workers able, willing, and qualified to perform the work and the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers will not be adversely impacted....MORE
This Labor Certification Registry allows the public to search, analyze, and retrieve labor certification decisions with unprecedented ease, clarity, and timeliness. This new web-based tool is a core component of the iCERT Visa Portal System providing real-time access to labor certification decisions in the PERM, H-1B, H-2A, and H-2B visa programs through one location and searchable along a series of common data points. In addition to the detailed labor certification documents that can be retrieved, this site also provides access to annual and quarterly longitudinal case-level disclosure data in easily accessible formats for more in-depth research and analysis. It is a work in progress, and new features and functionality will be added over time.
We are excited that you chose to visit our site. To learn more about the employment-based immigration programs administered by OFLC, click here.
