Q3 FY 2022 H1B LCA, PERM Data – 40% Increase in LCAs, 20% in PERMs

Recently, US Dept of Labor has released the Q3 FY 2022 Data for H1B LCAs and PERM filings. Similar to past, we have cleaned up and loaded all of the Q3 data to our H1BGrader’s LCA and PERM Database that already has millions of these datapoints. Current article covers some of the highlights and top 20 employers for H1B and PERM until Q3 FY 2022.

Employers filed 300K H1B LCAs in Q3 FY 2023

During FY 2021, combine LCA filings for Q1, Q2, and Q3 stood at 404,459 (137,058+77,300+190,101 ). Now, that number, compared to this year for FY 2022, it is up by 40.3% and stands at 567,505 for Q1 + Q2 + Q3 (112,409+155,108+299,988).
