In 2009, the Department of Labor Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) plans to implement a new portal system called iCERT for LCA and PERM filings. The iCERT system will require employers or attorneys to create a user account, from which they will be able to file both LCAs and PERM applications. LCA functionality will be added first, followed later by PERM functionality.
Once the system is up and running, all employers and attorneys or agents will have to set up new accounts in the iCERT system as no current LCA or PERM login data will transfer to the new system.
