How To Place A Job Order as part of the Labor Certification Process

The Department of Labor (DOL) requires  that all employers must place a job order with the state workforce agency (SWA) that corresponds to the state in which the  intended work will take place.

Once the job order has been placed it must be allowed to run for at least 30 consecutive days in the area where the job is intended to take place. This 30 days is meant to include both weekdays and weekends. In many cases the employer may opt to enable the order to run longer than 30 days to make sure there are no complications with the 30-day order.

After an additional 30 days, the required ETA 9089 form may then be filed. The ETA 9089 order is intended to give potential applicants from the United States the opportunity to apply for the position after the order has been placed. Once this has all been completed, employers should then retain printed copies of the SWA job posting for their documentation.
