On August 17, 2021, the Department of Labor’s Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) announced several enhancements to the Foreign Labor Application Gateway (FLAG) system:

  • A new “Notification Center” within user accounts that provides access to OFLC decisions and allows users to upload responses and view documents associated with labor certification applications
  • The ability to “reuse” a previously filed Form ETA-9141, Application for Prevailing Wage Determination, to pre-populate key sections in a new request
  • New options for reassigning cases among other authorized users within their account networks
