Background: The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. 201, et seq., sets the Federal minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards of most general application. See 29 U.S.C. 206; 207; 211; 212. FLSA requirements apply to employers of employees engaged in interstate commerce or in the production of goods for interstate PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 commerce and of employees in certain enterprises, including employees of a public agency; however, the FLSA contains exemptions that apply to employees in certain types of employment. See 29 U.S.C. 213, et al. FLSA section 11(c) requires all employers covered by the FLSA to make, keep, and preserve records of employees and of wages, hours, and other conditions and practices of employment. See 29 U.S.C. 211(c). A FLSA covered employer must maintain the records for such period of time and make such reports as prescribed by regulations issued by the Secretary of Labor. Id. The DOL has promulgated regulations 29 CFR part 516 to establish the basic FLSA recordkeeping requirements. The DOL has also issued specific sections of regulations 29 CFR parts 505, 519, 520, 525, 530, 547, 548, 549, 551, 552, 553, 570, 575, and 794 to supplement the part 516 requirements and to provide for the creation and maintenance of records relating to various FLSA exemptions and special provisions. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) uses this information to determine whether covered employers have complied with various FLSA requirements. Employers use the records to document FLSA compliance, including showing qualification for various FLSA exemptions. The WHD intends to seek approval to merge several currently approved information collection control numbers related to various FLSA recordkeeping requirements into this collection. This merger will allow the agency to improve its management of FLSA information collection requirements, and this transition will be seamless for respondents. While characterized as a revision, because of the proposal to merge information collection control numbers, this notice proposes no changes to the substantive information collection requirements. The affected OMB control numbers are shown at the end of this notice. II. Review Focus: The DOL 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; E:\FR\FM\23DEN1.SGM 23DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 245 / Wednesday, December 23, 2009 / Notices * 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.
