what is the difference between certified withdraw and withdraw in employer details report


#1

Hi,

I am new to this blog, I am searching for employers track record for filing h1b for past years. when i was searching with their name i was getting a table format report in that i see columns like certified, certified withdraw, and withdraw

Can some one please tell me what are they and the difference between each.

Thanks in advance.

As part of H-1 processing, first step is to file LCA w/ DOL.

Certified: Employer filed the LCA, which was approved by DOL

Certified Withdrawn: LCA was approved but later withdrawn by employer

Withdrawn: LCA was withdrawn by employer before approval

Denied: LCA was denied by DOL

None of these actually tell how many petitions were eventually approved or denied, as most denials happen during I-129 processing and not LCA certification.
