The Department of Labor’s (DOL’s) Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning a proposed revision for the authority to conduct the information collection request (ICR) titled, ‘‘Equal Employment Opportunity in Apprenticeship Training.’’ This comment request is part of continuing Departmental efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA). DATES: Consideration will be given to all written comments received by January 21, 2020. ADDRESSES: A copy of this ICR with applicable supporting documentation, including a description of the likely respondents, proposed frequency of response, and estimated total burden, may be obtained free by contacting Tiffany Ramos by telephone at 202– 693–3563 (this is not a toll-free number), TTY 1–877–889–5627 (this is not a toll-free number), or by email at OA-ICRs@dol.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Contact Tiffany Ramos by telephone at 202–693–3563 (this is not a toll-free number) or by email at OA-ICRs@ dol.gov. SUMMARY: Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A). DOL, as part of continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00080 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 and Federal agencies an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information before submitting them to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for final approval. This program helps to ensure requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements can be properly assessed. ETA is requesting the regular threeyear approval on a revision to a currently approved ICR pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act. If approved, this request will enable ETA to continue to collect data from applicants and apprentices, who file a discrimination complaint. Under the National Apprenticeship Act of 1937 (NAA) (29 U.S.C. 50), the Secretary of Labor is charged with the establishment of labor standards designed to safeguard the welfare of apprentices and promote apprenticeship opportunity. The NAA authorizes the Secretary of Labor to ‘‘publish information relating to existing and proposed labor standards of apprenticeship.’’ Title 29 CFR part 30 (part 30), titled ‘‘Equal Employment Opportunity in Apprenticeship,’’ sets forth policies and procedures to promote the equality of opportunity in apprenticeship programs registered with DOL and recognized State Apprenticeship Agencies. These regulations prohibit discrimination in registered apprenticeship on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex (including pregnancy and gender identity), disability, age (40 or older), genetic information, and sexual orientation, and require that sponsors of registered apprenticeship programs take affirmative action to provide equal opportunity in such programs. These policies and procedures apply to recruitment and selection of apprentices, and to all conditions of employment and training during apprenticeship. The procedures provide for registering apprenticeship programs, for reviewing apprenticeship programs, for processing complaints, and for deregistering non-complying apprenticeship programs. Part 30 also provides policies and procedures for continuation or withdrawal of recognition of state agencies, which register apprenticeship programs for Federal purposes. The Complaint Form—Equal Employment Opportunity in Apprenticeship Programs, ETA Form 9039, which is used by applicants and/ or apprentices to file a complaint of discrimination with the DOL, is set to expire on January 31, 2020.
