November 8, 2018. OMB Approval of Revisions to the ETA Form 9035/9035E and WH-4

In accordance with the Secretary's June 6, 2017, News Release, which calls for form changes to better protect American workers, confront fraud, and increase transparency, the Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) is announcing revisions to the Labor Condition Application (LCA) information collection. The revisions include the ETA Form 9035/9035E, Labor Condition Application for Nonimmigrant Workers, for H-1B, H-1B1, and E-3 Nonimmigrants; Form WH-4, Nonimmigrant Worker Information Form; and all applicable instructions and electronic versions. The ETA Form 9035/9035E is used in the Department of Labor's (DOL) employment-based temporary immigration programs to request permission to bring foreign workers to the United States as nonimmigrants to perform certain work in specialty occupations or as fashion models of distinguished merit and ability. The WH-4 form is used to request that DOL's Wage and Hour Division initiate an investigation related to alleged violations of the H-1B, H-1B1, or E-3 program requirements.
