A new problem has been found in the iCERT system that can cause a denial of the LCA. This time it is in regard to company’s FEIN that begins with zero (“0”). If the company’s FEIN starts with (“0”) the systems will automatically switch some digits in the FEIN thereby making the FEIN incorrect. The incorrect FEIN populates in the new LCA. In the event, the user does not notice the incorrect FEIN and the LCA is submitted with the incorrect FEIN the LCA will be denied due to the incorrect FEIN.
DOL is aware if this problem and working to find a solution. In the meantime
LCAs should be reviewed carefully before submission to make sure that
the FEIN number is correct.
