The Department of Labor (DOL) has informed a liaison of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) that they will continue to keep the old Labor Condition Application (LCA) system operable for a specified time.
The reasons behind allowing the old LCA system to remain operational through June 30, 2009 are two-fold. First, the DOL wanted time to continue to evaluate issues of concern regarding the LCA system. The DOL has received numerous complaints and issues from users of the system. Secondly, the DOL wanted to give users more time to become familiar with the new LCA system.
If you have any questions about the new LCA system, please feel free to contact our office.
