We have published all labor petitions filed during the first six months of fiscal year 2020 through the upgraded LCA system. Our legacy database system is retiring and the new system has significantly expanded the scope of labor data available to our members. Search 2020 LCA Now!

From October 1, 2019 to March 31, 2020, Department of Labor made decisions on 272,089 labor condition applications for H-1B visa jobs. This number is much lower this year due to the new H-1B electronic registration process implemented in March,2020. Employers do no have to file petitions before they receive the lottery winner notice.
