Does the labor certification belong to the foreign national?

No. The labor certification is a job specific application which “belongs” to the U.S. employer whom is sponsoring the application for that particular position. The existence of a labor certification casts no benefits on the individual foreign worker involved in the application unless and until the employer files and secures an approval for an I-140 Immigrant Petition from USCIS.
