The Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) completed the process to randomly assign to analysts for review and processing all H-2B applications submitted during the three-day filing window (July 3-5, 2021) requesting an October 1, 2021, work start date. OFLC published the Assignment Group(s) for 873 H-2B applications covering 21,116 worker positions with a work start date of October 1, 2021. 

Since the number of H-2B applications received during the three-day filing window collectively requested fewer worker positions for certification than the number of visas available under the semi-annual visa allotment for the first half of fiscal year 2022, all H-2B applications filed within that time period that requested workers starting October 1, 2021, were randomly given a unique number in accordance with OFLC’s randomization process and were placed into the same group for assignment to analysts for review and processing.
