Download as PDF rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 124 / Thursday, June 26, 2008 / Notices employers who have received certification for temporary foreign agricultural labor inform their local State Workforce Agency in writing if the foreign (H–2A) workers do not depart for the place of employment three days prior to the date of need as specified in their certified applications for such foreign labor. The departure date is used to start the running of the contract period for administration of the Fiftypercent Rule. Section 103(e) provides that the employer must continue to provide employment to any qualified and eligible U.S. worker who applies to the employer until 50 percent of the work contract period, under which the foreign worker is in the job, has elapsed. The employer’s obligation to engage in positive recruitment ends on the date the foreign workers depart for the employer’s place of business. The notification required under the regulations is written by the employer and sent to the SWA. The SWA uses the information to calculate the end of active recruitment requirements and Fifty-percent Rule referral requirements. 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.
