ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of Labor (Department or DOL), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)). This program helps ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data on the Form ETA– 9142A, H–2A Application for Temporary Employment Certification, and Appendix A (OMB Control Number 1205–0466), which expire on March 31, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The information collection (IC) is required by sections 101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a); 214(c); and 218 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1011(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a), 1184(c), and 1188) and 8 CFR 214.2(h). Before an employer may petition for any temporary foreign workers, it must submit a request for certification to the Secretary of Labor containing the elements prescribed by the INA and the Department’s implementing regulations, which differ depending on the visa program under which the foreign workers are sought. The H–2A program enables employers to bring nonimmigrant foreign workers to the U.S. to perform agricultural work of a temporary or seasonal nature as defined in 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a). For purposes of the H–2A program, the INA and governing federal regulations require the Secretary of Labor to certify, among other things, that any foreign worker seeking to enter the United States (U.S.) temporarily for the purpose of performing certain unskilled labor will not, by doing so, adversely affect wages and working conditions of U.S. workers similarly employed. The Secretary must also certify that there are not sufficient U.S. workers available to E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1 80388 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 247 / Thursday, December 24, 2015 / Notices perform such labor. (8 CFR 214.2(h)(5)(i)(A), (iii)(A).) The information contained in the Form ETA–9142A is the basis for the Secretary’s determination that no U.S. workers are available. The Form ETA– 9142A, H–2A Application for Temporary Employment Certification, is used to collect information to permit the Department to meet its statutory responsibilities for administering the H– 2A temporary labor certification program. The Appendix A lists all of the attestations required by employers in the H–2A program. The proposed amendment to the Appendix A will allow employers who file electronically to submit a copy of a signed Appendix A with their electronically filed Form ETA–9142A and, upon receipt of the original certified Form ETA–9142A, to complete the footer on the original Appendix A with the information contained on the approved application. Employers must retain the original Appendix A and file a copy of the signed Appendix A, together with the original certified Form ETA–9142A, with Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Lastly, the Department is proposing revisions to Appendix A to reflect the requirements of 20 CFR 655.200–235, which are the new regulatory requirements for H–2A employers who are in the sheep and goat herding and range production of livestock occupations.

The Department of Labor (DOL) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed extension of Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for the Solicitation of Nominations for the Iqbal Masih Award for the Elimination of Child Labor information collection request (ICR), as part of continuing Departmental efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.).

Submit comments regarding this ICR, including suggestions for reducing the burden, by sending an email to DOL_PRA_ PUBLIC@dol.gov. Comments may also be sent to Michel Smyth, Departmental Clearance Officer, U.S. Department of Labor, Office of the Chief Information Officer, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Room N–1301, Washington, DC 20210. Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). The DOL Iqbal Masih Award for the Elimination of Child Labor, presented by the Secretary of Labor, is intended to recognize exceptional efforts to reduce the worst forms of child labor. The Award was created in response to a Senate Committee mandate directing the Secretary of Labor to establish an annual non-monetary award recognizing extraordinary efforts by an individual, company, organization, or national government to reduce the worst forms of child labor. The DOL is proposing to extend this ICR to allow the public to nominate and provide critical information on proposed candidates for this award who have demonstrated extraordinary efforts to combat the worst forms of child labor. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. 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 if the collection of information 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 1290–0007. The current approval is scheduled to expire on February 29, 2016; however, the DOL intends to seek continued approval for this collection of information for an additional three years. The DOL, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before they are submitted to the OMB. This program helps to ensure requested data can be provided SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

    The information collection (IC) is required by sections 
101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a); 214(c); and 218 of the Immigration and 
Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1011(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a), 1184(c), and 
1188) and 8 CFR 214.2(h). Before an employer may petition for any 
temporary foreign workers, it must submit a request for certification 
to the Secretary of Labor containing the elements prescribed by the INA 
and the Department's implementing regulations, which differ depending 
on the visa program under which the foreign workers are sought. The H-
2A program enables employers to bring nonimmigrant foreign workers to 
the U.S. to perform agricultural work of a temporary or seasonal nature 
as defined in 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(a). For purposes of the H-2A 
program, the INA and governing federal regulations require the 
Secretary of Labor to certify, among other things, that any foreign 
worker seeking to enter the United States (U.S.) temporarily for the 
purpose of performing certain unskilled labor will not, by doing so, 
adversely affect wages and working conditions of U.S. workers similarly 
employed. The Secretary must also certify that there are not sufficient 
U.S. workers available to

[[Page 80388]]

perform such labor. (8 CFR 214.2(h)(5)(i)(A), (iii)(A).)
    The information contained in the Form ETA-9142A is the basis for 
the Secretary's determination that no U.S. workers are available. The 
Form ETA-9142A, H-2A Application for Temporary Employment 
Certification, is used to collect information to permit the Department 
to meet its statutory responsibilities for administering the H-2A 
temporary labor certification program. The Appendix A lists all of the 
attestations required by employers in the H-2A program. The proposed 
amendment to the Appendix A will allow employers who file 
electronically to submit a copy of a signed Appendix A with their 
electronically filed Form ETA-9142A and, upon receipt of the original 
certified Form ETA-9142A, to complete the footer on the original 
Appendix A with the information contained on the approved application. 
Employers must retain the original Appendix A and file a copy of the 
signed Appendix A, together with the original certified Form ETA-9142A, 
with Department of Homeland Security's U.S. Citizenship and Immigration 
Services.
    Lastly, the Department is proposing revisions to Appendix A to 
reflect the requirements of 20 CFR 655.200-235, which are the new 
regulatory requirements for H-2A employers who are in the sheep and 
goat herding and range production of livestock occupations.

II. Review Focus

    DOL is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
     evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information, including the 
validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
     enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who 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.
