Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the Nonmonetary Determination Activity Report (Form ETA–207) that collects data on the number and types of issues States adjudicate when unemployment insurance claims are filed. The form also collects data on the number of disqualifications issued for reasons associated with a claimant’s separation from employment and reasons related to a claimant’s continuing eligibility for benefits. The ETA, Office of Unemployment Insurance uses these data to determine workload counts for allocation of administrative funds, to analyze the ratio of disqualifications to determinations, and to examine and evaluate the program effect of nonmonetary activities. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because the ETA seeks to remove reporting requirements associated with the now expired Federal Emergency Unemployment Compensation Program. Social Security Act section 303(a)(6) authorizes this information collection. See 42 U.S.C. 503(a)(6). 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 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 1205–0150. The current approval is scheduled to expire on March 31, 2016; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:42 Mar 02, 2017 Jkt 241001 extension while they undergo review.

For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on September 6, 2016 (81 FR 51253). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1205–0150. The OMB 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 submission of responses. Agency: DOL–ETA. Title of Collection: Nonmonetary Determination Activity Report. OMB Control Number: 1205–0150. Affected Public: State, Local, and Tribal Governments.

The 2017 CWS will provide information on the characteristics of workers in contingent jobs, i.e., jobs structured to last only a limited period. The CWS will also provide information about workers in several alternative employment arrangements, including independent contractors, on-call workers, temporary help agency workers, and workers provided by contract companies. The CWS was fielded every 2 years from 1995 to 2005; however, since then, there have been no reliable and comparable statistics to show how the number and characteristics of these workers have changed over time. In order to maintain data comparability, the 2017 CWS questionnaire will largely be the same as that used in 2005; however, because new types of work have emerged since the last CWS collection, the BLS proposes to add 4 new questions to the end of the CWS. These new questions will explore how the Internet and mobile device applications have changed the type of work people do and how they are paid.
