SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

I. Background

    Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) section 14(b)(3), 29 U.S.C. 
214(b)(3), authorizes the Secretary of Labor to provide certificates 
allowing institutions of higher education to employ their full-time 
students at subminimum wages, to the extent necessary to prevent 
curtailment of opportunities for employment. This section also sets 
limits on such employment and protects the full-time employment 
opportunities of other workers. The Department of Labor (DOL) has 
issued Regulations 29 CFR part 519 to implement the statutory 
provision. An institution of higher education uses Form WH-201, when 
applying for authorization to pay subminimum wages to its full-time 
students employed by the institution. The WH-201 application provides 
the information necessary to ascertain whether the requirements of 
section 14(b) have been met. This information collection is currently 
approved for use through November 30, 2005.

II. Review Focus

    The Department of Labor is particularly interested in comments 
which:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate 
automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection 
techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting 
electronic submissions of responses.

III. Current Actions

    The Wage and Hour Division seeks the approval of the extension of 
this information collection to carry out its responsibility to make a 
determination whether to grant or deny subminimum wage authority to the 
applicant. If the information were not collected, institutions of 
higher education would not have a mechanism to apply for authorization 
to pay full-time students at subminimum wages and job opportunities for 
full-time students would be reduced.
