On November 5, 2019 the Department of Labor held a presentation and gave updates to a number of their programs. AILA has reported on the update. The updates include:

-DOL expects that PWD processing times will remain at 4 months, despite its goal to get the processing time down to 90 days.

-The Form 9141 (PWD) has been updated and posted to the OMB webpage. The expectation is that it will go live in mid-2020. Until that time, the current Form 9141 remains valid, even though it lists an expired 10/31/2019 date.

-With the October launch of LCAs on the PERM system, iCert will soon be decommissioned.

-At some point PERM will move to the FLAG system, although it is not expected until 2021 at the earliest.
