Download as PDF amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 21 / Thursday, January 31, 2019 / Notices collection to reduce employer time and burden preparing applications, and promote greater efficiency and transparency in ETA’s review and issuance of labor certification decisions under the H–2B program. ETA is also seeking comments on the Form ETA–9155, H–2B Registration, which allows ETA to determine whether the nature and duration of the employer’s need for H–2B workers is temporary. Where ETA has not operationalized the registration process through a separate notice in the Federal Register, H–2B applications are exempt from the registration requirements under 20 CFR 655.11, and the adjudication of the employer’s temporary need will continue to occur based on information collected on the Form ETA–9142B. ETA is also seeking comments on its proposed implementation of three new appendices to the Form ETA–9142B. The proposed Appendix A would require an employer to use a standard format to disclose additional place(s) of employment and, if applicable, multiple wage offers for the job opportunity. Proposed Appendix C would require an employer to use a standard format to disclose the identity and location of all foreign labor recruiters. In order to recruit prospective foreign workers for the job opportunities offered by the employer under the Form ETA–9142B, the employer, and its attorney or agent (as applicable), must provide the identity and location of all persons and entities hired by or working for the recruiter or agent and any of the agent(s) or employee(s) of those person and entities. 20 CFR 655.9(b). Collection of this information in a standard format will also permit ETA more effectively to comply with 20 CFR 655.9(c), which requires the maintenance of a publicly available list of foreign labor recruiters and the location(s) in which they are operating. Proposed Appendix D would require an employer filing as a job contractor to disclose the name and contact information of its employerclient, as required by 20 CFR 655.19(d)(1). These appendices will establish a more efficient and standardized method of collecting information currently submitted by employers to the Department using a variety of paper-based documents that are separately attached to the Form ETA–9142B. To promote greater efficiency in issuing temporary labor certification decisions and minimize delays associated with employers filing H–2B petitions with DHS, ETA is seeking to eliminate the issuance of paper-based labor certification decisions by VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:21 Jan 30, 2019 Jkt 247001 proposing the creation of a one-page Form ETA–9142B, Final Determination: H–2B Temporary Labor Certification Approval, which will be issued electronically to employers granted temporary labor certification by DOL. In circumstances where the employer or, if applicable, its authorized attorney or agent, is not able to receive the temporary labor certification documents electronically, ETA will send the certification documents printed on standard paper in a manner that ensures overnight delivery. Finally, ETA is requesting a three-year extension, without change, of the Form ETA–9142B, Seafood Industry Attestation. Employers in the seafood industry who wish to stagger the entry of H–2B workers into the United States between 90 and 120 days after the certified start date of need will need to complete the Form ETA–9142B, Seafood Industry Attestation, and provide a copy to each H–2B worker to present, upon request by DHS, when seeking entry into the United States. 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.
