Jones Apparel US LLC, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee; Notice of Negative 
Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration

    By application dated March 10, 2015, workers requested 
administrative reconsideration of the Department of Labor's negative 
determination regarding eligibility to apply for worker adjustment 
assistance, applicable to workers and former workers of Jones Apparel 
US LLC, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee. The denial notice was signed on 
February 12, 2015, and the Notice of Determination was published in the 
Federal Register on March 18, 2015 (80 FR 14166).
    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 
misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of 
the decision.
    The negative determination of the TAA petition filed on behalf of 
workers at Jones Apparel US LLC, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee was based on 
the firm not producing an article within the meaning of Section 222(a) 
or Section 222(b) of the Act. 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, the petitioner 
did not supply facts not previously considered; nor provide additional 
documentation indicating that there was either (1) a mistake in the 
determination of facts not previously considered or (2) a 
misinterpretation of facts or of the law justifying reconsideration of 
the initial determination. Based on these findings, the Department 
determines that 29 CFR 90.18(c) has not been met.
    The original investigation confirmed that the workers' firm did not 
produce an article. Rather, the workers' firm supplied services related 
to the supply of warehousing, distribution, quality control, and retail 
services. The investigation confirmed that production of the firm's 
apparel product lines occurs outside of the United States.

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 14th day of April, 2015.
