Proposed Extension of the Approval of Information Collection 
Requirements

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

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

learners and student-workers). 29 CFR 520.200. Regulations found at 29 
CFR Part 520 contain the provisions that implement the section 14(a)

a certificate to employ student-learners at wages lower than the 
general federal minimum wage. Form WH-209 is the application an 
employer uses to request a certificate authorizing the employer to 
employ learners and/or messengers at subminimum wage rates. There is no 
application form that employers complete to obtain authority from DOL 
to employ apprentices at subminimum wages. This information collection 
is currently approved for use through April 30, 2009.

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.

for the extension of this currently approved information collection in 
order to carry out its responsibility under the special minimum wage
