During the public comment period, the Consent Decree may be examined and downloaded at this Justice Department website: https:// www.justice.gov/enrd/consent-decrees. Employment and Training Administration, Labor. ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: 797 Each year, the Department of Defense issues a Schedule of Remuneration used by states for UCX purposes. States must use the schedule to determine Federal military wages for UCX ‘‘first claims’’ only when the Federal Claims Control Center (FCCC) responds to a request for information indicating that there is no Copy 5 of the Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214) for an individual under the social security number provided. A response from the FCCC that indicates ‘‘no DD214 on file’’ will prompt the state to start the affidavit process and to use the attached schedule to calculate the Federal military wages for an unemployment insurance or UCX monetary determination. The schedule applies to UCX ‘‘first claims’’ filed beginning with the first day of the first week that begins on or after January 1, 2019, pursuant to the UCX program regulations (see 20 CFR 614.12(c)). States must continue to use the 2018 schedule (or other appropriate schedule) for UCX ‘‘first claims’’ filed before the effective date of the revised schedule. SUMMARY: Signed: Molly E.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks approval under the PRA for revisions to the H–2B Foreign Labor Certification Program information collection. The information collection is required by Sections 101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b) and 214(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) (8 U.S.C. 1011(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b) and 1184(c)), as well as 8 CFR 214.2(h)(6), 20 CFR 655, Subpart A, and 29 CFR 503. The H–2B program enables employers to bring nonimmigrant foreign workers to the United States to perform nonagricultural work of a temporary nature. See 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(15)(H)(ii)(b). The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) consults with DOL with respect to the H–2B program, and DOL provides advice on whether U.S. workers capable of performing the temporary services or labor are available. See 8 U.S.C. 1184(c)(1), INA Section 214(c)(1) (providing for DHS to consult with ‘‘appropriate agencies of the Government’’). Under DHS regulations, an H–2B petition for temporary employment must be accompanied by an approved temporary labor certification from DOL, which serves as DOL’s consultative advice to DHS regarding whether a qualified U.S. worker is available to fill the petitioning H–2B employer’s job opportunity and whether a foreign worker’s employment in the job opportunity will adversely affect the wages or working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers. See 8 CFR 214.2(h)(6)(iii)(A), (iv)(A). DHS and DOL jointly promulgated regulations establishing the processes by which an employer must obtain a prevailing wage and temporary labor certification from DOL, and the rights PO 00000 Frm 00153 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and obligations of workers and employers. See 20 CFR 655, Subpart A; 29 CFR 503; 8 CFR 214.2(h)(6)(iii)-(iv). This ICR, OMB Control No. 1205– 0509, includes the collection of information related to the use of employer-provided surveys for determining prevailing wages and the temporary labor certification process in the H–2B program. The Form ETA– 9165, Employer-Provided Survey Attestations to Accompany H–2B Prevailing Wage Determination Request Based on a Non-OES Survey, is used to collect information that permits ETA to determine whether an employerprovided survey can be used to establish a prevailing wage in the occupational classification in lieu of a prevailing wage determined using the Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) program. The information contained in the Form ETA–9142B, H–2B Application for Temporary Employment Certification, and corresponding appendices serve as the basis for the Secretary’s determination that qualified U.S. workers are not available to perform the services or labor needed by the employer and that the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers will not be adversely affected by the employment of H–2B workers. This determination is required before a petition can be approved by DHS. Employers use Appendix B of the Form ETA–9142B to attest that they will comply with all of the terms, conditions, and obligations of the H–2B program. ETA is seeking comments on proposed revisions to the Form ETA– 9142B, H–2B Application for Temporary Employment Certification; Form ETA– 9142B, Appendix B; Form ETA–9165, Employer-Provided Survey Attestations to Accompany H–2B Prevailing Wage Determination Request Based on a NonOES Survey; and the instructions accompanying those forms. The proposed revisions will better align information collection requirements with DOL’s current regulatory framework, provide greater clarity to employers on regulatory requirements, standardize and streamline information E:\FR\FM\31JAN1.SGM 31JAN1

Notice To Ensure State Workforce Agencies Are Aware of the 
Revised Schedule of Remuneration for the Unemployment Compensation for 
Ex-Servicemembers (UCX) Program That Reflects the Military Pay Increase 
Effective January 1, 2019

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Each year, the Department of Defense issues a Schedule of 
Remuneration used by states for UCX purposes. States must use the 
schedule to determine Federal military wages for UCX ``first claims'' 
only when the Federal Claims Control Center (FCCC) responds to a 
request for information indicating that there is no Copy 5 of the 
Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD Form 214) for 
an individual under the social security number provided. A response 
from the FCCC that indicates ``no DD214 on file'' will prompt the state 
to start the affidavit process and to use the attached schedule to 
calculate the Federal military wages for an unemployment insurance or 
UCX monetary determination.
    The schedule applies to UCX ``first claims'' filed beginning with 
the first day of the first week that begins on or after January 1, 
2019, pursuant to the UCX program regulations (see 20 CFR 614.12(c)). 
States must continue to use the 2018 schedule (or other appropriate 
schedule) for UCX ``first claims'' filed before the effective date of 
the revised schedule.

    Signed:
Molly E. Conway,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Employment and Training, Labor.
