Download as PDF 31990 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 106 / Tuesday, June 3, 2014 / Notices jobs in legitimate businesses. 48 U.S.C. 1806(d)(5)(C)(v). In order for us to properly assess the CNMI’s workforce in the future, we request that the CNMI government provide updates to the Department on a yearly basis about its good faith efforts to locate, educate, train, or otherwise prepare U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and unemployed alien workers already in the CNMI. Section 701 of the CNRA states it is the intent of the Congress to minimize potential adverse economic and fiscal effects of phasing-out CNMI’s nonresident contract worker program and to maximize the CNMI’s potential for future economic and business growth by, among other things, assuring that foreign workers are protected from the potential for abuse and exploitation. Pub. L. 110–229, Sec. 701(a)(1)(E), 48 U.S.C. 1806 note. The Department emphasizes the importance of Congress’s intent in this regard, and further notes that this notice should not be construed to alter or amend the continuing obligations of CNMI employers to adhere to and comply with applicable civil rights, labor and workplace safety laws. Employers in CNMI remain subject to the array of federal laws that, among others, ensure and protect the rights of workers to a workplace based on fair treatment, and free of unlawful discrimination and hazards to safety and health. Those and other workplace rights will continue to be applied forcefully by the Department and other federal agencies with jurisdiction to administer and enforce federal worker protection laws. Signed at Washington, DC, this 27 of May, 2014. Thomas E. Perez, Secretary of Labor.

Background The Current Employment Statistics (CES) program provides current monthly statistics on employment, hours, and earnings, by industry and geography. CES estimates are among the most visible and widely-used Principal Federal Economic Indicators (PFEIs). CES data are also among the timeliest of the PFEIs, with their release each month by the BLS in the Employment Situation, typically on the first Friday of each month. The statistics are fundamental inputs in economic decision processes at all levels of government, private enterprise, and organized labor. The CES monthly estimates of employment, hours, and earnings are based on a sample of U.S. nonagricultural establishments. Information is derived from approximately 271,400 reports (from a sample of 144,000 employers with State Unemployment Insurance (UI) accounts comprised of 554,000 individual worksites), as of January 2014. Each month, firms report their employment, payroll, and hours on forms identified as the BLS–790. The sample is collected under a probability-based design. Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands collect an additional 7,400 reports. A list of all form types currently used appears in the table below. Respondents receive variations of the basic collection forms, depending on their industry. The CES program is a voluntary program under Federal statute. Reporting to the State agencies is voluntary in all but four States (Oregon, Washington, North Carolina, and South Carolina), Puerto Rico, and the Virgin E:\FR\FM\03JNN1.SGM 03JNN1
