The Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) reminded employers that the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) will be upgrading the H-2B form “fill and submit” module, which OFLC said is expected to reduce lag time in completing form fields, document uploads, and appendices. All other FLAG H-2B functionality will be available to filers in the upgraded fill and submit module.
H-2B submissions made after 6 p.m. ET on April 28, 2022, must be started and submitted in the new form module, OFLC said. Any initiated H-2B cases submitted prior to that date and time will be deleted and a new application using the upgraded module will need to be created.
