Default Copy of labor approval

My attorney tells me they don't give employees copies of labor applications.

Is this normal? Would I need it in future - if I switch jobs 180 days after 485 etc?

Same thing with me. Lawyer does not release copies of Certified LC or I-140 approval.

From what I understand that should not cause issues with AC21; however I would feel much better having these copies in my hand just in case....my 2 cents...of course ask attorney before making any moves...

Labor and 140 is property of the employer, most of the cases it is not provided to the employee. And yes thats pretty normal.
But if your employer instructs the attorney he can share the copies of the same with you.

The Labor is of no use to you, except to feel secure that they indeed applied for your Labor. But since you have already applied for your 485 and have an RD, it is obvious there was a labor and that is all you really need.

Since you have already applied for 485, a 140 copy would be pretty much useless too. I would not sweat it out.

For AC21, it is better to have a 485 receipt copy. Make sure you get that. You will also need it if you travel outside the US before your AP arrives.

You don't need it If you stick to your employer till you get you GC.If you want to switch to other employer after 180 days of RD(Using AC21) , then you need to know the the position/title of your Labor (It's written on the Labor Certification) , because you have to accept a job with the same position/title with the new employer.Correct me if I am wrong.

As per my knowledge Labor and I-140 (originals) are company's property.If employer is willing he/she can give you a copy

yes that is true that we need position and job details before looking out usin AC-21. I am in same boat, I have I-140 copy but nothing related to labor. I think I am stuck for next 3-4 years with current employer.

My lawyer sends each and every piece of information. They sent 9089 for review,797 for labor also. They sent me the original approved labor certificate for my signature to file for 140. and also 797 copy for 140.

Though the employer processes labor and 140, Employee should ensure the accuracy of the information on all the applications. Employer should not deny for this.

These employers that abuse employees need to learn some lessons on how to treat their employees.

I think IV needs to take an inititave on these small scale body shopping employers who are not treating their employers with respect and the dignity they deserve.

OTOH

I now work for a big IT company. As big as it can get. I had much better luck with my lawyers when I worked for startups.

Any Idea , which section of 9089 Form we need to look for the position/designation/title our company applied for? Is it F.3 or H.3? here is the 9089 form http://www.foreignlaborcert.doleta.gov/pdf/9089form.pdf
