What Is The Alien Labor Certification Program?

The Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation's Alien Labor Certification Program is federally funded through a contract with the U.S. Department of Labor. For many professional, technical, managerial and skilled occupations, the program allows employers who have been unable to hire qualified workers eligible to work in the United States to file a labor certification application with the Alien Labor Certification Section to bring foreign workers into the United States on a permanent or temporary basis. In connection with filing the labor certification application, the Alien Labor Certification staff is required to determine the prevailing wage for the occupation in the area of intended employment and to initiate a work search to recruit and refer qualified U.S. workers for the job opening. The employer can only reject U.S. applicants for job related reasons. After completion this process, the application is forwarded to the Agency for Workforce Innovation's Region III office, for certification or denial.
