One comment was received; however, it did not address recordkeeping or the specific requirements in 29 CFR part 1602, but rather appeared to concern a federal EEO complaint filed by the commenter. As such, the comment was deemed nonresponsive, and its contents were not considered in regards to this information collection. To protect the personal privacy of the commenter, EEOC is electing not to post the nonresponsive comment on regulations.gov. Overview of This Information Collection Collection title: Recordkeeping under Title VII, the ADA, and GINA. OMB Control number: 3046–0040. Description of affected public: Employers with 15 or more employees are subject to Title VII, the ADA, and GINA. Number of responses: 914,843. Reporting hours: Not applicable. Number of forms: None. Federal cost: None. Abstract: Section 709(c) of Title VII, 42 U.S.C. 2000e-8(c), section 107(a) of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. 12117(a), and section 207 of GINA, 42 U.S.C. 2000ff6 require the Commission to establish regulations pursuant to which employers subject to those Acts shall make and preserve certain records to assist the EEOC in assuring compliance with the Acts’ nondiscrimination in employment requirements. This is a recordkeeping requirement. Any of the records maintained which are subsequently disclosed to the EEOC during an investigation are protected from public disclosure by the confidentiality provisions of section 706(b) and 709(e) of Title VII which are also incorporated by reference into the ADA at section 107(a) and GINA at section 207. Burden statement: The estimated number of respondents is 914,843 employers. An employer subject to the recordkeeping requirement in 29 CFR part 1602 must retain all personnel or employment records made or kept by that employer for one year, and must retain any records relevant to charges filed under Title VII, the ADA, or GINA until final disposition of those matters, which may be longer than one year. This recordkeeping requirement does not require reports or the creation of new documents, but merely requires retention of documents that an employer has already made or kept in the normal course of its business operations. Thus, existing employers bear no burden under this analysis, because their systems for retaining personnel and employment records are VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:09 Apr 09, 2015 Jkt 235001 already in place. Newly formed firms may incur a small burden when setting up their data collection systems to ensure compliance with EEOC’s recordkeeping requirements. We assume some effort and time must be expended by employers to familiarize themselves with the Title VII, ADA, and GINA recordkeeping requirements and inform staff about those requirements. We estimate that 30 minutes would be needed for this one-time familiarization process. Using 2011 data from the Small Business Administration, we estimate that there are 82,516 firms that would incur this start-up burden. Assuming a 30 minute burden per firm, the total annual hour burden is 41,258 hours. OMB is particularly interested in comments which: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the Commission’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the Commission’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

    Description of affected public: Employers with 15 or more employees 
are subject to Title VII, the ADA, and GINA.
    Number of responses: 914,843.
    Reporting hours: Not applicable.
    Number of forms: None.
    Federal cost: None.
    Abstract: Section 709(c) of Title VII, 42 U.S.C. 2000e-8(c), 
section 107(a) of the ADA, 42 U.S.C. 12117(a), and section 207 of GINA, 
42 U.S.C. 2000ff-6 require the Commission to establish regulations 
pursuant to which employers subject to those Acts shall make and

the Acts' nondiscrimination in employment requirements. This is a 
recordkeeping requirement. Any of the records maintained which are

protected from public disclosure by the confidentiality provisions of 
section 706(b) and 709(e) of Title VII which are also incorporated by 
reference into the ADA at section 107(a) and GINA at section 207.
    Burden statement: The estimated number of respondents is 914,843 
employers. An employer subject to the recordkeeping requirement in 29 
CFR part 1602 must retain all personnel or employment records made or 
kept by that employer for one year, and must retain any records

including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the Commission's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and

who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated,
