Written notices are currently submitted to the OFCCP by fax, mail, or email; however, the new form will allow respondents to submit the notifications on the agency’s website through the proposed Notification of Construction Contract Award Portal. In addition, this ICR would incorporate information collections that are currently approved under the ICRs titled ‘‘Government Contractors, Prohibitions Against Pay Secrecy Policies and Actions’’ (Control Number 1250–0008) and ‘‘Prohibiting Discrimination Based on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity by Contractors and Subcontractors’’ (Control Number 1250– 0009). The merger of the collections will place related equal employment requirements for covered Federal construction contractors under master clearances. 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 1250–0001. The DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on September 25, 2017 (82 FR 44663). 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 1250–0001. 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 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:56 Apr 09, 2018 Jkt 244001 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.

Background The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) collects data on job vacancies, labor hires, and labor separations. As the monthly JOLTS time series grow longer, their value in assessing the business cycle, the difficulty that employers have in hiring workers, and the extent of the mismatch between the unused supply of available workers and the unmet demand for labor by employers will increase. The study of the complex relationship between job openings and unemployment is of particular interest to researchers. While these two measures are expected to move in opposite directions over the course of the business cycle, their relative levels and movements depend on the efficiency of the labor market in matching workers and jobs. Along with the job openings rate, trends in hires and separations may broadly identify which aggregate industries face the tightest labor markets. Quits rates, the number of persons who quit during an entire month as a percentage of total employment, may provide clues about workers’ views of the labor market or their success in finding better jobs. In addition, businesses will be able to compare their own turnover rates to the national, regional, and major industry division rates. The BLS uses the JOLTS form to gather employment, job openings, hires, and total separations from business establishments. The information is collected once a month at the BLS Data Collection Center (DCC) in Atlanta, Georgia.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) collects data on 
job vacancies, labor hires, and labor separations. As the monthly JOLTS 
time series grow longer, their value in assessing the business cycle, 
the difficulty that employers have in hiring workers, and the extent of 
the mismatch between the unused supply of available workers and the 
unmet demand for labor by employers will increase. The study of the 
complex relationship between job openings and unemployment is of 
particular interest to researchers. While these two measures are 
expected to move in opposite directions over the course of the business 
cycle, their relative levels and movements depend on the efficiency of 
the labor market in matching workers and jobs.
    Along with the job openings rate, trends in hires and separations 
may broadly identify which aggregate industries face the tightest labor 
markets. Quits rates, the number of persons who quit during an entire 
month as a percentage of total employment, may provide clues about 
workers' views of the labor market or their success in finding better 
jobs. In addition, businesses will be able to compare their own 
turnover rates to the national, regional, and major industry division 
rates.
    The BLS uses the JOLTS form to gather employment, job openings, 
hires, and total separations from business establishments. The 
information is collected once a month at the BLS Data Collection Center 
(DCC) in Atlanta, Georgia. The information is collected using Computer 
Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI), Web, email, and

[[Page 15409]]

FAX. An establishment is in the sample for 24 consecutive months.

II. Current Action

    Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the 
JOLTS. The BLS is requesting an extension to the existing clearance for 
the JOLTS. There are no major changes being made to the forms, 
procedures, data collection methodology, or other aspects of the 
survey.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics 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.
     Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
those who are to respond, 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.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
