The Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) reminded employers that the filing window to submit H-2B Applications for Temporary Employment Certification (Form ETA-9142B and appendices) requesting work start dates of April 1, 2021, or later will open on January 1, 2021. H-2B applications requesting an April 1 start date will be denied if they are filed before January 1.

OFLC said it will randomly order all H-2B applications requesting a work start date of April 1 that are filed during the initial three calendar days (January 1-3) using randomization procedures published on March 4, 2019.
