SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the H–2A Sheepherder Recordkeeping Requirement information collection. Under the foreign labor certification programs administered by ETA, the H–2A temporary labor certification 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). The H–2A program also permits employers to employ foreign sheepherders and goatherders and those working in openrange production of livestock. In order to meet its statutory responsibilities under the Immigration and Nationality Act, the Department must request information from employers seeking to hire and import foreign labor. The Department uses the information collected to determine whether employers engaging in sheep herding, goat herding, or open-range production of livestock have met their obligations under Federal law. This ICR pertains to program obligations for employers seeking to hire foreign temporary agricultural workers for job opportunities in herding or production of livestock on the open range. Among the issues addressed through this ICR are timekeeping requirements of employers. In order to determine eligibility for the program based on the amount of work performed on the range, this ICR requires employers to note whether employees spend days on the ranch or on the range. This ICR also requires employers to record the reason for the worker’s absence where the employer chooses to prorate the required wage. 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 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. DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1205–0519. The current approval is scheduled to expire on November 30, 2018; however, DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DEPARTMENT OF LABOR 62385 E:\FR\FM\03DEN1.SGM 03DEN1
