SUMMARY: The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95) [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Employment Standards Administration is soliciting comments concerning the proposed collection: The Remedial Education Provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. A copy of the proposed information collection request can be obtained by contacting the office listed below in the ADDRESSES section of this Notice. DATES: Written comments must be submitted to the office listed in the ADDRESSES section below on or before January 17, 2006. ADDRESSES: Ms. Hazel M. Bell, U.S. Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Ave., NW., Room S–3201, Washington, DC 20210, telephone (202) 693–0418, fax (202) 693–1451, E-mail bell.hazel@dol.gov. Please use only one method of transmission for comments (mail, fax, or E-mail). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. 201 et seq., sets minimum wage, overtime pay, youth employment and certain recordkeeping standards. These requirements generally apply to employees engaged in interstate commerce or in the production of goods for interstate commerce, as well as to VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:38 Nov 16, 2005 Jkt 208001 employees in certain enterprises (including employees of a public agency); however, the Act provides exemptions from some of its standards for employees in certain types of employment. The FLSA generally requires employers to pay overtime hours (i.e., time in excess of forty hours in a workweek) worked by employees covered by the Act at time and one-half the employee’s regular rate of pay. FLSA section 7(q) provides a partial overtime exemption that allows an employer to employ any employee who lacks a high school diploma or whose reading level or basic skills is at or below the eighth grade level for up to ten overtime hours per week without paying the usually required half-time premium, if the employee is receiving remedial education during such overtime hours. The employer-provided remedial education must be designed to provide up to eighth grade level basic skills or to fulfill the requirements for a high school diploma or General Educational Development (GED) certificate and may not include job-specific training. The employer must also compensate for time spent in such remedial education at no less than the employee’s regular rate of pay. Regulations, 29 CFR Part 516, Records to be Kept by Employers, contain the basic recordkeeping requirements for employers of employees subject to FLSA protections. In addition to the basic recordkeeping requirements, Regulations 29 CFR 516.34 requires employers using this partial overtime exemption to indicate the hours an employee engages in exempt remedial education each workday and total hours each workweek. The employer may either state the hours separately or make a notation on the payroll. The subject information collection relates only to the section 516.34 requirements. This information collection is currently approved for use through July 31, 2006. * 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. II. Review Focus Dated: November 10, 2005. Bruce Bohanon, Chief, Branch of Management Review and Internal Control, Division of Financial Management, Office of Management, Administration and Planning Employment Standards Administration. [FR Doc. E5–6360 Filed 11–16–05; 8:45 am] 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; PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 III. Current Actions The Department of Labor seeks the approval of the extension of this information collection in order to review and determine employer compliance with the applicable section of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). These recordkeeping requirements for employers utilizing the partial overtime exemption for remedial education are necessary to ensure employees are paid in compliance with the remedial education provisions of the FLSA. Type of Review: Extension. Agency: Employment Standards Administration. Titles: The Remedial Education Provisions of the Fair Labor Standards Act. OMB Number: 1215–0175 Affected Public: Business or other forprofit; Not-for-profit institutions; State, Local or Tribal Government. Type of Response: Recordkeeping. Total Respondents: 15,000. Total Annual responses: 30,000. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 5,000. Estimated Time Per Response: 1 minute per week for 10 weeks (10 minutes per year). Total Burden Cost (capital/startup): $0. Total Burden Cost (operating/ maintenance): $0. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval of the information collection request; they will also become a matter of public record.
