The U.S. Department of Labor ("DOL") has created a new Labor Condition Application ("LCA") form and process for the H-1B, H-1B1, and E-3 temporary work visas, and will roll out the new LCA on April 15, 2009. The new LCA will become mandatory on May 15, 2009. Further, DOL is instituting a new PERM application form on July 1, 2009. All PERM cases filed on or after August 1, 2009 must be filed on the new PERM application. To better coordinate these kinds of LCA and PERM application filings DOL has created a new portal known as iCERT.
