  • The U.S. Department of Labor has activated its new iCERT system for filing the new Labor Condition Application Form 9035E for the H-1B program.  The system is located at http://icert.doleta.gov  The current electronic LCA system will continue to be available through May 14, 2009. However, effective May 15, 2009, LCAs will be available for submission only through the iCERT portal system and the current electronic version of the Form ETA 9035E will be deactived.

    The PERM application, Form ETA 9089, will become available for application submission on September 1, 2009 on the iCERT portal. To allow for an appropriate transition, both systems will be active during the month of September. However, beginning October 1, 2009, PERM applications will be submitted electronically only through iCERT system accounts.  The Department will deactivate the current electronic version of the Form ETA 9089 on October 1, 2009. Employers are encouraged to copy all necessary application information into the new iCERT system prior to these deactivation dates. The status of applications submitted prior to deactivation will continue to be available through current system accounts.
