BEWARE of iCERT Glitch – Review LCAs Carefully

The Department of Labor’s (DOL) new iCERT system for submitting Labor Condition Applications in H-1B cases is creating more problems for practitioners, employers and other users. Recently, the system has been dropping the “0” at the beginning of FEINs that begin with “0” when the number is entered in the iCERT employer profile. As a result, applications, which auto-generate the FEIN, are getting submitted with an incorrect FEIN. The DOL advises to carefully review the LCA application to make sure the complete FEIN is listed before submitting.
