Employment and Training Administration 69597 Employment and Training Administration [TA–W–53,321] SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In March 2004, the Department of Labor (DOL), through the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Policy’s Office of Compliance Assistance Policy (OCA), launched the Partnerships for Compliance Assistance Program (PCAP) which is aimed at promoting greater awareness and compliance with DOL’s employment laws through partnerships and activities with nonprofit third-party membership organizations. Through DOL’s and its partners’ efforts, PCAP increases opportunities to provide DOL’s customers with assistance in complying with federal employment laws. Following the March 2004 PCAP announcement, nine organizations were recommended and approved for partnership. Partnership activities include but are not limited to dissemination of compliance assistance educational materials, participation in Web casts, e-mail alerts of new compliance assistance tools or resources, newsletter articles, Web links, and speaking engagements. OCA is again seeking partnership applications from nonprofit third-party trade, professional or labor membership organizations that share DOL’s understanding of the importance of providing clear, accurate and easy-toaccess compliance assistance to employers and other stakeholders, in order to protect the wages, health benefits, retirement security, safety and health of America’s workforce. Partnership efforts are designed to provide nonprofit third-party organizations and their members with an awareness of the various laws and regulations DOL administers and where to get accurate and easy-to-access information on compliance assistance. These partnerships enable DOL to reach a greater number of businesses and workers than it could solely through its own outreach efforts. Signed at Washington, DC, this 9th day of November, 2005.
