Investigations Regarding Certifications of Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance and Alternative Trade Adjustment Assistance, 69712-69713 [E7-23794]

Download as PDF 69712 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 236 / Monday, December 10, 2007 / Notices issuing this Title Policy involves reviewing of the legal documentation, taxes, easements, etc., which is followed by the Preliminary Title Report, which in its turn, becomes the basis for the Title Insurance Policy. The Title Insurance Policy and Preliminary Title Reports are documents used by the subject firm as incidentals to the purpose of the services provided by workers of the subject firm. The investigation revealed that workers of Commonwealth Land Title Co., Northern CA Production Center, a division of LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., Martinez, California are engaged in data entry, faxing and scanning, telephone services, research of the records systems, data analysis, writing various reports, and maintaining company data. These services, as described above, are not considered production of an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act. No production took place at the subject facility and the workers did not support production of articles at any affiliated firm in the relevant time period. The petitioner also alleges that ‘‘the Title Examination function has been outsourced to India.’’ The allegation of a shift to another country might be relevant if it was determined that workers of the subject firm produced an article. However, the investigation determined that workers of Commonwealth Land Title Co., Northern CA Production Center, a division of LandAmerica Financial Group, Inc., Martinez, California do not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222 of the Trade Act of 1974. Conclusion After review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. Signed in Washington, DC., this 28th day of November, 2007. Linda G. Poole, Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance. [FR Doc.
