        The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) assigns specific

    [[Page 80812]]
    the U.S. Secretary of Labor for the administration of certain 
    employment-based immigration programs that require a labor 
    certification, a labor condition application, or a labor attestation. 
    In the case of a labor certification, these statutory responsibilities 
    include, determining that there are not able, willing, qualified, and 
    available U.S. workers for a position and location for which 
    certification is being requested, and that the employment of the 
    foreign worker(s) will not have an adverse impact on similarly employed 
    U.S. workers.
        Employers seeking to hire foreign workers in the D-1, E-3, H-1B, H-
    1B1, H-2A, H-2B, or the permanent/``green card'' visa programs must 
    first apply to the Secretary of Labor to obtain a labor certification 
    or for the approval of a labor condition application, or a labor 
    attestation. The Secretary has delegated the responsibilities for the 
    administration of these programs to the Employment and Training 
    Administration's (ETA) Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC). 
    The OFLC National Office is responsible for overall program management, 
    policy and operational coordination, as well as budget, performance, 
    and all other administrative functions supporting the organization.
        The purpose of this Notice is to inform the public that the OFLC 
    National Office has relocated within Washington, DC and to provide the 
    new physical and mailing address for the OFLC National Office.
