Also, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 collection of information if the related materials do not display a currently valid OMB control number.

Email address is richie.celeste.j@dol.gov and fax number is (202) 693–5960. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1. Background The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is performing a pilot study to determine how to measure workers’ voice in mining workplaces under the jurisdiction of DOL’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA). DOL’s working definition for voice in the workplace is the ‘‘workers’ ability to access information on their rights in the workplace, their understanding of those rights, and their ability to exercise these rights without fear of discrimination or retaliation.’’ Voice in the workplace is a key outcome goal for the Secretary of Labor and part of her vision of good jobs for everyone. A separate concurrent effort will measure workers’ voice in workplaces under the jurisdiction of DOL’s Wage and Hour Division (WHD) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Measuring voice among miners, however, poses unique data collection challenges, including implementing a survey in a setting that feels non-threatening to mine workers, and asking questions in a format that reflects mining community cultures and practices. Thus, DOL is performing a pilot study to investigate the efficacy of different data collection methods and to develop a survey instrument that is appropriate for the mining community. The primary research question is ‘‘What measures of voice and perceived non-compliance, combined with what modes of data collection, could be best used to track MSHA’s worker protection outreach activity?’’ This submission covers a set of 2–3 small-scale pilot data collections. Data collection for this effort will employ 2–3 strategies: (1) Submission of E:\FR\FM\19JAN1.SGM 19JAN1
