DOL Confirms Another Problem with LCA FEIN Verification

Our law firm has written before about the FEIN verification problems in the Labor Condition Application (LCA) certification process.  Now the Department of Labor (DOL) has confirmed that there is another problem that could also lead to LCA denials. When registering a company or when adding a company to your account list, if the company’s FEIN begins with zero (“0”), the iCert system drops some digits and inserts errant digits. The wrong FEIN then populates new LCAs.  If you don’t notice the incorrect FEIN and you submit the LCA, that LCA can be denied for a FEIN no-match. 

The moral of this story is to review all the information in the LCA carefully before submission.  

We will post additional information on as it becomes available.
