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. The Secretary has delegated these responsibilities to the Employment and Training Administration's (ETA's) Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC). 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

IMPORTANT NOTICE: Availability of Labor Certification Documents. Before searching the LCR, please refer to our LCR Document Availability Schedule to learn which records are available. Currently, the LCR displays all certified H-1B1 and E-3 Labor Condition Applications (LCA) and Permanent labor certifications, dating back to April 15, 2009. However, the Department is experiencing technical difficulties with the display of approved H-1B LCAs. We are currently working to resolve the technical issues and will post more information as it becomes available. In addition, due to the historical paper-based filings of H-2A and H-2B applications, these labor certification documents must be manually redacted and uploaded to the LCR and, therefore, only a limited number of records covering Fiscal Year 2013 are currently available. Our staff will also continue to upload historical H-2A and H-2B documents in the coming months, so please make sure you regularly check our document availability schedule.
