Investigations Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance, 25890-25891 [2014-10257]

Download as PDF 25890 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 87 / Tuesday, May 6, 2014 / Notices to ensure that Mr. Guzda is eligible for TAA benefits.’’ 19 U.S.C. 2291 establishes that the certification period ends at ‘‘the 2-year period beginning on the date on which the determination under section 223 was made.’’ 29 CFR 90.11(b) states ‘‘Every petition filed with the Department shall clearly state the group of workers on whose behalf the petition is filed.’’ 29 CFR 90.2 states ‘‘Group means three or more workers in a firm or appropriate subdivision therof.’’ 29 CFR 90.16(e) states ‘‘A certification of eligibility to apply for adjustment assistance shall not apply to any worker: (1) whose last total or partial separation from the firm or appropriate subdivision occurred more than one (1) year before the date of the petition.’’ Because there was one worker at the subject firm on/after February 6, 2013, the worker group criteria have not been met. Because the petitioner did not supply facts not previously considered and did not provide additional documentation indicating that there was either a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered or a misinterpretation of facts, or of the law justifying reconsideration of the initial determination, the Department determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met. Conclusion After careful review of the application and investigative findings, I conclude that there has been no error or misinterpretation of the law or of the facts which would justify reconsideration of the Department of Labor’s prior decision. Accordingly, the application is denied. Signed in Washington, DC, this 24th day of April, 2014. Del Min Amy Chen, Certifying Officer, Office of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
