On June 4, 2019, the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) announced that beginning Monday, June 10, OFLC will accept online submissions of the Application for Prevailing Wage Determination (Form ETA-9141) in the FLAG System covering all visa programs.
As part of the Department's technology modernization initiative, the FLAG System is being developed to improve customer service and modernize the administration of foreign labor certification programs through the Employment and Training Administration's OFLC. Technology is a key enabler for OFLC to deliver the highest quality customer service, and implementing the FLAG System will ensure our technology capabilities are modern, secure and resilient. According to the FLAG website, DOL anticipates between July - September 2019 to roll out H-1B, H-1B1, and E-3 Labor Condition Applications (LCA) using the new FLAG system.
FLAG System Implementation: Form ETA-9141
Beginning Monday, June 10, 2019, OFLC will accept online submissions of the Application for Prevailing Wage Determination (Form ETA-9141) in the FLAG System covering all visa programs.
