Background: The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act (MSPA) provides that no person shall engage in any farm labor contracting activity for any money or valuable consideration paid or promised to be paid, unless such person has a certificate of registration from the Secretary of Labor specifying which farm labor contracting activities such person is authorized to perform. See 29 U.S.C. 1802(7), 1811(a); 29 CFR 500.1(c), –.20(i), –.40. MSPA also provides that a Farm Labor Contractor (FLC) shall not hire, employ, or use any individual to perform farm labor contracting activities unless such individual has a certificate of registration as a FLC or a certificate of registration as a Farm Labor Contractor Employee (FLCE) of the FLC that authorizes the activity for which such individual is hired, employed or used. 29 U.S.C. 1811(b); 29 CFR 500.1(c). Form WH–530 is an application used to obtain a Farm Labor Contractor License. This information PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17855 collection is currently approved for use through November 30, 2018. MSPA section 401 (29 U.S.C. 1841) requires, subject to certain exceptions, all Farm Labor Contractors (FLCs), Agricultural Employers (AGERs), and Agricultural Associations (AGASs) to ensure that any vehicle they use or cause to be used to transport or drive any migrant or seasonal agricultural worker conforms to safety and health standards prescribed by the Secretary of Labor under the MSPA and with other applicable Federal and State safety standards. These MSPA safety standards address the vehicle, driver, and insurance. The Wage and Hour Division (WHD) has created Forms WH–514, WH–514a, and WH–515, which allow FLC applicants to verify to the WHD that the vehicles used to transport migrant/seasonal agricultural workers meet the MSPA vehicle safety standards and that anyone who drives such workers meets the Act’s minimum physical requirements. The WHD uses the information in deciding whether to authorize the FLC/FLC Employee applicant to transport/drive any migrant/seasonal agricultural worker(s) or to cause such transportation. Form WH–514 is used to verify that any vehicle used or caused to be used to transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural worker(s) meets the Department of Transportation (DOT) safety standards. When the adopted DOT rules do not apply, FLC applicants seeking authorization to transport any migrant/seasonal agricultural workers use Form WH–514a to verify that the vehicles meet the DOL safety standards and, upon the vehicle meeting the required safety standards, the form is completed. Form WH–515 is a doctor’s certificate used to document that a motor vehicle driver or operator meets the minimum DOT physical requirements that the DOL has adopted. This information collection is currently approved for use through November 30, 2018. II. Review Focus: The 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 E:\FR\FM\24APN1.SGM 24APN1 17856 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 79 / Tuesday, April 24, 2018 / Notices * 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    I. Background: The Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker 
Protection Act (MSPA) provides that no person shall engage in any farm 
labor contracting activity for any money or valuable consideration paid 
or promised to be paid, unless such person has a certificate of 
registration from the Secretary of Labor specifying which farm labor 
contracting activities such person is authorized to perform. See 29 
U.S.C. 1802(7), 1811(a); 29 CFR 500.1(c), -.20(i), -.40. MSPA also 
provides that a Farm Labor Contractor (FLC) shall not hire, employ, or 
use any individual to perform farm labor contracting activities unless 
such individual has a certificate of registration as a FLC or a 
certificate of registration as a Farm Labor Contractor Employee (FLCE) 
of the FLC that authorizes the activity for which such individual is 
hired, employed or used. 29 U.S.C. 1811(b); 29 CFR 500.1(c). Form WH-
530 is an application used to obtain a Farm Labor Contractor License. 
This information collection is currently approved for use through 
November 30, 2018.
    MSPA section 401 (29 U.S.C. 1841) requires, subject to certain 
exceptions, all Farm Labor Contractors (FLCs), Agricultural Employers 
(AGERs), and Agricultural Associations (AGASs) to ensure that any 
vehicle they use or cause to be used to transport or drive any migrant 
or seasonal agricultural worker conforms to safety and health standards 
prescribed by the Secretary of Labor under the MSPA and with other 
applicable Federal and State safety standards. These MSPA safety 
standards address the vehicle, driver, and insurance. The Wage and Hour 
Division (WHD) has created Forms WH-514, WH-514a, and WH-515, which 
allow FLC applicants to verify to the WHD that the vehicles used to 
transport migrant/seasonal agricultural workers meet the MSPA vehicle 
safety standards and that anyone who drives such workers meets the 
Act's minimum physical requirements. The WHD uses the information in 
deciding whether to authorize the FLC/FLC Employee applicant to 
transport/drive any migrant/seasonal agricultural worker(s) or to cause 
such transportation. Form WH-514 is used to verify that any vehicle 
used or caused to be used to transport any migrant/seasonal 
agricultural worker(s) meets the Department of Transportation (DOT) 
safety standards. When the adopted DOT rules do not apply, FLC 
applicants seeking authorization to transport any migrant/seasonal 
agricultural workers use Form WH-514a to verify that the vehicles meet 
the DOL safety standards and, upon the vehicle meeting the required 
safety standards, the form is completed. Form WH-515 is a doctor's 
certificate used to document that a motor vehicle driver or operator 
meets the minimum DOT physical requirements that the DOL has adopted. 
This information collection is currently approved for use through 
November 30, 2018.
    II. Review Focus: The 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

[[Page 17856]]

    * 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.
    III. Current Actions: The DOL seeks to extend the information 
collection requests for the Application for a Farm Labor Contractor or 
Farm Labor Contractor Employee Certificate of Registration.
