Greencard processing - will change in job position require me to file Labor again?

Asked over 1 year ago - King Of Prussia, PA

I am currently working as a Quality Assurance Analyst and am looking to move into a sterling OMS developer role or a Database developer role..I gathered that as long as the change in the position is progressive, I will not have to apply for labor again. Do I need to apply for a labor certification again in my case? What does this really depend on? What is the law? Thanks for your responses in advance.
