PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for a revision to the Application for Permanent Employment Certification, Form ETA–9089, information collection. The form is used in DOL’s employmentbased immigration program by employers to request permission to bring foreign workers to the United States as immigrants and in the Department of Homeland Security’s National Interest Waiver program by individuals applying for a waiver of the job offer requirement if the waiver is deemed to be in the national interest. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because of minor clarifications to some of the data respondents are to provide. Immigration and Nationality Act sections 203(b)(2), 203(b)(3), and 212(a)(5)(A) authorize this information collection. See 8 U.S.C. 1153(b)(2), 1153(b)(3), 1182(a)(5)(A). See also regulations 20 CFR 656 and 8 CFR 204.5. This information collection is subject to the PRA.

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 this information collection under Control Number 1205–0451. The current approval is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2014; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
