SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) of the Department of Labor (DOL) 
administers the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act 
(MSPA), 29 U.S.C. 1801 et seq. The MSPA protects migrant and seasonal 
agricultural workers by establishing employment standards related to 
wages, housing, transportation, disclosures, and recordkeeping. The 
MSPA also requires farm labor contractors and farm labor contractor 
employees to register with the U.S. Department of Labor and to obtain 
special authorization before housing, transporting, or driving covered 
workers. The MSPA requires that any person owning or controlling any 
facility or real property to be used for housing migrant agricultural 
workers shall not permit such housing to be occupied by any worker 
unless copy of a certificate of occupancy from the state, local or 
federal agency that conducted the housing safety and health inspection 
is posted at the site of the facility or real property. The certificate 
attests that the facility or real property meets applicable safety and 
health standards. Form WH-520 is an information gathering form and the 
certificate of occupancy that the Wage and Hour Division issues when it 
is the federal agency conducting the safety and health inspection.

II. Review Focus

which:

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;
     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.

III. Current Actions

    The DOL seeks an approval for the extension of this information 
collection that requires any person owning or controlling any facility 
or real property to be occupied by migrant agricultural workers to 
obtain a certificate of occupancy.
