See below for explanation of field names.
To search by employer, job title, and/or city, check out our H-1B Database.
The Labor Condition Application (LCA) is a form U.S. employers must file to sponsor non-immigrant workers in H-1B, H-1B1 or E-3 visa programs. LCA is filed using Form ETA 9035E or 9035. The Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is responsible for certifying LCA cases. If approved, an LCA is valid for three years (H-1B and H-1B1) or two years (E-3).
Form 9035E is required for Online filing of an LCA through the ETA's FLAG system (used to be iCert System). All employers must use electronic filing, unless prior special permission is granted to submit paper form ETA-9035 by mail.
All data came from the United States government. More specifically, LCA information released by the Department of Labor. Every year DOL publishes a massive amount of LCA and H1B data as required by transparency protocols. However, DOL releases their data in one huge spreadsheet, making it extremely difficult to search for relevant information. ImmigrationRoad.com has built this database to allow users easily find H-1B sponsors, job titles, annual salaries, work locations and much more.
Certain information, such as Federal Employer Identification Number(FEIN), personal contact info, and other confidential data are not released by the DOL, but they're quired for filing LCA.
The table above captures the content of an entire Labor Condition Application (LCA) form, published by the DOL. LCA is required for each H-1B petition. New, extension or transfer applications all must have a certified LCA to begin with. Most of the data fields are self-explanatory, but some may need clarification. We'll provide brief descriptions below. For more details, please refer to official documentation at doleta.gov.
