The INA mandates the Secretary of Labor to certify that any alien seeking to enter the United States for the purpose of performing skilled or unskilled labor is not adversely affecting wages and working conditions of U.S. workers similarly employed and that there are not sufficient U.S. workers able, willing, and qualified to perform such skilled or unskilled labor. Before any employer may request any skilled or unskilled alien labor, it must submit a request for certification to the Secretary of Labor containing the elements prescribed by the INA or meet one of the exceptions in the INA. Both the Department of Labor and the Department of Homeland Security have promulgated regulations to implement these sections of the INA. The relevant regulations are 20 CFR 655.1–4, 20 CFR 655.90–113, 20 CFR 655.200–215, 8 CFR 204.5(k)(4)(ii), and 8 CFR 214.2(h)(5) and (6). In order to meet its statutory responsibilities under the INA, the Department needs to extend an existing collection of information pertaining to employers seeking to import foreign labor. The Form ETA–750 is the mechanism used to collect the necessary information which is utilized not only by the Department, but also by other Federal agencies to meet the requirements of the INA. The Department uses the information collected to implement several of its nonimmigrant worker programs, including the H–2A and H–2B temporary work programs, and for both permanent and temporary programs for the employment of alien professional athletes. The Department of Homeland Security, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, utilizes the form for its National Interest Waiver program for employment-sponsored immigration.

unskilled labor is not adversely affecting wages and working conditions 
of U.S. workers similarly employed and that there are not sufficient 
U.S. workers able, willing, and qualified to perform such skilled or
