Please use only one method of transmission for comments (mail, fax, or E-mail). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION I. Background: Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) sections 14(b)(1)–(3), 29 U.S.C. 214(b)(1)–(3), require the Secretary of Labor, to the extent necessary to prevent curtailment of opportunities for employment, to provide certificates authorizing the employment of full-time students at not less than 85 percent of the applicable minimum wage or less than $1.60, whichever is higher, in (1) retail or service establishments and agriculture (See 29 CFR 519.1(a)); and (2) institutions of higher education (See 29 CFR 519.11(a)). These provisions set limits on such employment as well as prescribe safeguards to protect the fulltime students so employed and the fulltime employment opportunities of other workers. See 29 CFR 519.1(b), 519.11(b). Forms WH–200, WH–201, and WH–202 are voluntary-use application forms an authorized representative of an employer may prepare and sign to request a certificate authorizing the employment of full-time students at subminimum wages. Form WH–200 requests authority to employ more than six full-time students at subminimum wages at a named establishment in a monthly amount not exceeding (1) 10 percent of the total monthly hours worked by all employees of that establishment or (2) specific percentages, based on historic employment data, of total employee hours. Form WH–202 requests authority to employ up to six full-time students at subminimum wages throughout the employer’s enterprise on any given day. Form WH–201 requests authority for an E:\FR\FM\29MYN1.SGM 29MYN1 jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 104 / Thursday, May 29, 2008 / Notices institution of higher education to pay subminimum wages to its full-time students employed by the institution.

The 1215–0032 information collection is currently approved for use through November 30, 2008, and the 1215–0080 information collection is currently approved for use through December 31, 2008. 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 Department of Labor seeks approval for the revision of this currently approved information collection in order to determine whether to grant or deny subminimum wage authority to the applicant(s); to allow employers to request a certificate authorizing payment of subminimum wages to full-time students and thereby increase job opportunities for such students, if approved.
