ACTION: Notice of meeting. SUMMARY: The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) in the Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration (ETA) has been reengineering several of its programs, including the H–2A foreign agricultural worker labor certification program. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the Employment Standards Administration (ESA) has been amending contractual obligations applicable to employers of workers subject to Section 218 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). The Department published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to redesign the H–2A agricultural labor certification program on February 13, 2008. The Department is currently reviewing public comments on this proposed rule and intends to publish final regulations before the end of the calendar year. In addition, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has published an NPRM to amend its H–2A regulations and intends to publish a final rule before the end of the calendar year as well. Pursuant to the Department of Labor final rule, changes to information collection and regulatory requirements will affect the application forms. The H– 2A program will no longer use the Form ETA 750 (OMB control number 1205– VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:27 Dec 04, 2008 Jkt 217001 0015). Instead the program will utilize the new Form ETA 9142 (OMB control number 1205–0466). The new regulations also federalize the prevailing wage determination process in the H– 2A program. ETA and ESA are issuing this notice to announce that they will offer at least two public briefings to educate stakeholders, program users, and other interested members of the public on using the re-engineered program and new form. Representatives from DHS will also be joining the Department of Labor at the briefing sessions. As currently planned, the two briefings will take place in late 2008 in Atlanta and Denver.
