We have published all labor petitions filed during the first nine 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!

During this period, Department of Labor made decisions on over 462,000 labor condition applications for H-1B visa jobs, and approved nearly 440,000 of them. These numbers are lower than previous years due to the new H-1B electronic registration process implemented in March,2020.

Since employers no longer have to file labor petitions before they receive the lottery winner notices, our LCA database now more accurately reflects the hiring of visa sponsors.

While we are still adding new features to the LCA system, please use following links to understand new rules and regulations, search potential job opportunities and pitch employers directly.

U.S. employers are always looking for skilled workers, even in holiday seasons. Please polish your resume and update your career profiles regularly.
