DOL imposes new LCA electronic notice obligations on employers and end-clients

  1. Original Date Announced

    March 15, 2019

    New DOL policy requires employers to take extra steps if they are posting an LCA (Labor Condition Application) electronically, to ensure that electronic notices are readily available and accessible to all affected employees, including: 1. Taking steps to make sure that all affected U.S. workers – including employees of a third party -- are aware of an LCA notice for an occupation at the worksite; 2. Ensuring that affected workers have ready access to the electronic notice. Posting the notice on an inaccessible or little-known electronic site would not suffice to meet the LCA regulations; and 3. Ensuring that affected workers are able to locate the electronic notice that applies to their specific worksite. [ID #548]
