Processing delays arising from Department of Labor’s (DOL) recently implemented “iCert” system have resulted in increased processing times for certain LCA certificates. In response to requests from the public to accept H1B petitions that have filed a Labor Condition Applications (LCAs) but have not yet certified by the DOL, USCIS has announced a 120-day period in which it will temporarily accept H1B petitions filed with uncertified LCAs, commencing November 5, 2009 and through March 4, 2010.
