What Happens to Labor Certifications Filed by Predecessor Company?

Hi William:

My employer just undergoes a corporate change, and our company has been bought by another company. What happens to my Labor Certifications filed by the predecessor company?


The U.S. Department of Labor does not allow modification of a pending Labor Certification application. Generally, it is advisable for the successor-in-interest company to wait until the Labor Certification decision. 

If it is approved, then the case can continue with the successor company filing the Form I-140 with the USCIS. This I-140 filing would be accompanied by the Labor Certification as well as evidence that the company is a successor-in-interest to original Labor Certification filing company.
