Background: On September 7, 2015, President Barack Obama signed Executive Order 13706 (80 FR 54697, September 10, 2015). The Executive Order established paid sick leave for Federal Contractors. Executive Order 13706 stated that the Federal Government’s procurement interests in efficiency and cost savings are promoted when the Federal Government contracts with sources that ensure workers on those contracts can earn paid sick leave. The Executive Order therefore required parties who contract with the Federal Government to provide their employees with up to seven days of paid sick time annually, including paid time allowing for family care. The Final Rule established standards and procedures for implementing and enforcing the paid sick leave requirements of Executive Order 13706. As required by the Order, the Final Rule incorporated, to the extent practicable, existing definitions, procedures, remedies, and enforcement processes under the Fair Labor Standards Act, the McNamara-O’Hara Service Contract Act, the Davis-Bacon Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Violence Against Women Act, and Executive Order 13658, Establishing a Minimum Wage for Contractors. Among other requirements, the regulations require employers subject to the Order to make and maintain records for notifications to employees on leave accrual and requests to use paid sick leave, dates and amounts of paid sick leave used, written responses to requests to use paid sick leave, records relating to certification and documentation where an employer requires this from an employee using at least three consecutive days of leave, tracking of or calculations related to an employee’s accrual or use of paid sick leave, the relevant covered contract, pay and benefits provided to an employee using leave, and any financial payment for unused sick leave made to an employee on separation from employment. The information collection was submitted with the Final Rule and is currently approved for use through December, 2019. II. Review Focus: The DOL is particularly interested in comments that: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the PO 00000 Frm 00066 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23587 functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. 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; 3. enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. 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 Establishing Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors. Type of Review: Extension. Agency: Wage and Hour Division. Titles: Establishing Paid Sick Leave for Federal Contractors. OMB Number: 1235–0029. Affected Public: Federal Contractors. Respondents: 454,067. Total Annual Responses: 1,816,268. Estimated Total Burden Hours: 30,272. Estimated Time per Response: 5 minutes. Frequency: On Occasion, but no more often than annual. Total Burden Cost (capital/startup): $0. Total Burden Cost (operating/ maintenance): $392,910. Dated: April 30, 2019. Robert M. Waterman, Division of Regulations, Legislation and Interpretation.

Agencies may not destroy Federal records without the approval of the Archivist of the United States. The Archivist grants this approval only after thorough consideration of the records’ administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not the records have historical or other value.

Background

    Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records. To control 
this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing 
retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA's 
approval. Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory 
instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for 
current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies 
to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives or to 
destroy, after a specified period, records lacking continuing 
administrative, legal, research, or other value. Some schedules are

major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one 
office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update 
previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as 
permanent.
    Agencies may not destroy Federal records without the approval of 
the Archivist of the United States. The Archivist grants this approval 
only after thorough consideration of the records' administrative use by 
the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private
