The DOL has indicated that it will delay the mandatory use of the new iCERT system for Labor Condition Applications (LCA) as part of the H-1B process until June 30, 2009. However, the system is currently available and remains an option for the submission of LCAs. The iCERT system was initially supposed to become mandatory for LCA processing on May 15, 2009. However, the DOL indicated that it was delaying the mandatory use of the new system for LCA processing to the DOL additional time to resolve some issues with the system. Our firm has been using the system on a very limited basis. However, even with our firm’s limited usage, we have experienced numerous issues with the system, including being timed out of the system while attempting to input a new LCA and in registering users in the new system. The DOL said that the additional time will allow the DOL to resolve many of the issues that have been brought to its attention by current users.
