Our goal is to match U.S. workers with employers' recruitment needs. When workers are not able, willing, qualified, or available to fill these openings, the Foreign Labor Certification (FLC) program can be used to help the employer find qualified workers.

Each year, Ohio employers hire over 4,000 foreign workers to perform temporary, full-time work when they are unable to find U.S. workers.
