Temporary Outage of Department of Labor’s iCERT system Delaying LCAs and Wage Determinations
January 5, 2019
On Tuesday, January 1, 2019, the U.S. Department of Labor’s (“DOL”) portal system iCERT received a record number of H-2B applications submitted by an unprecedented volume of simultaneous system users. The volume of submissions resulted in a temporary shutdown of the iCERT portal system for a period of seven (7) calendar days. According to the DOL, within the first five minutes of opening the semi-annual H-2B certification process, the iCERT system had an unprecedented demand for H-2B certifications with more than 97,800 workers requested in pending applications for the 33,000 available visas. With more than thirty-times the user demand on the iCERT system compared to last year on January 1, the iCERT system experienced a system disruption.
