The DOL administers the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. 201, et seq. The FLSA generally requires covered employers to pay employees at least the Federal minimum wage for all hours worked and overtime premium pay of time and one-half the regular rate of pay for all hours worked over forty (40) in a workweek. However, the FLSA includes a number of exemptions from the minimum wage and overtime requirements, requiring employers to classify employees to ensure adherence to proper practices. The DOL intends to administer a survey to collect information about employment TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:08 Nov 07, 2013 Jkt 232001 experiences and worker knowledge as to basic employment laws in order to understand employee experiences with worker classification issues. More specifically, the DOL plans to compile an analytical research report on the findings and results of a nationally representative survey of workers. The DOL will also report on a qualitative study of employers that includes results from in-depth employer interviews. This proposed information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on January 11, 2013. Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention ICR Reference Number 201303–1235–002. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • 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 submission of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to maintain PRA authority for 
the process by which a coal mine operator applies for a permit to fire 
more than 20 shots and to use nonpermissible explosives and/or shot-
firing units. An application contains the safeguards the mine operator 
will employ to protect miners while using requested blasting items. 
Federal Mine Safety and Health Act section 313, 30 U.S.C. 873, 
authorizes these applications. Regulations 30 CFR 75.1321 outlines the 
procedures by which a permit may be issued for the firing of more than 
20 boreholes and/or the use of nonpermissible shot-firing units in 
underground coal mines. Regulations 30 CFR 77.1909-1 outlines the 
procedures by which a coal mine operator may apply for a permit to use 
nonpermissible explosives and/or shot-firing units in the blasting of 
rock while sinking a shaft or slope in an underground coal mine. In 
addition, this ICR seeks to maintain PRA authorization for the 30 CFR 
75.1327 requirement that a qualified person post a warning to prohibit 
entry at each accessible entrance to the affected area when explosives 
have misfired.
    These information collections are subject to the PRA. A Federal 
agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, 
and the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for these information collections 
under Control Number 1219-0025.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this control number 
is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2013. The DOL seeks to extend 
PRA authorization for these information collections for three (3) more 
years, without any change to existing requirements. The DOL also notes 
that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on July 3, 2013 (78 FR 40195).
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1219-0025. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     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 submission of responses.
