The Foreign Labor Certification (FLC) program ensures that permanent
or temporary job opportunities, wages, and working conditions of U.S. workers will not be adversely affected by the employment of foreign workers.
This program is the first stage of employment-based immigration for employers to hire foreign workers if U.S. workers are not able, willing, qualified, or available to fill job openings.
Did you know?
The FLC unit has helped many employers find and employ U.S. workers. Each year, Ohio employers hire over 4,000 foreign workers to perform temporary, full-time work.
