See 29 U.S.C. 1802(7), 1811(a); 29 CFR 500.1(c), 500.20(i), 500.40. The MSPA also provides that a Farm Labor Contractor (FLC) shall not hire, employ, or use any individual to perform farm labor contracting activities unless such individual has a certificate of registration as a FLC or a certificate of registration as a Farm Labor Contractor Employee (FLCE) of the FLC that authorizes the activity for which such individual is hired, employed or used. 29 U.S.C. 1811(b); 29 CFR 500.1(c).

The denial notice was signed on November 25, 2014, and the Notice of Determination was published in the Federal Register on December 10, 2014 (79 FR 73338). Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c) reconsideration may be granted under the following circumstances: (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a mis-interpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The initial investigation revealed that the subject firm does not produce an article within the meaning of Section 222(a) or Section 222(b) of the Act. Rather, the investigation revealed that the workers’ firm supplied services related to administrative support and customer services. In order to be considered eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, the worker group seeking certification (or on whose behalf certification is being sought) must work for a ‘‘firm’’ or appropriate subdivision that produces an article. The definition of a firm includes an individual proprietorship, partnership, joint venture, association, corporation (including a development corporation), business trust, cooperative, trustee in bankruptcy, and receiver under decree of any court. In the request for reconsideration, the petitioner stated that the workers of the subject firm should be eligible for TAA because the subject firm shifted to a foreign country the supply of like or E:\FR\FM\25MRN1.SGM 25MRN1

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.

collection requests for the Application for a Farm Labor Contractor or
