The Department of Labor (Department), as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a preclearance consultation program to provide the public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on the proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 [44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)]. This program helps ensure that 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 on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently, ETA is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data of the approved information collection, Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number 1205- 0310, containing Form ETA 9035Labor Condition Application for Nonimmigrant Workers; Form ETA 9035ELabor Condition Application for Nonimmigrants (electronic version); Form ETA 9035CPGeneral Instructions for the 9035 & 9035E; and Wage and Hour Division (WHD) Form WH-4Nonimmigrant Worker Information Form, which expire on March 31, 2015. In order to meet its statutory responsibilities under the INA, the Department is revising the existing collection of information pertaining to employers seeking to apply for labor condition applications to allow them to bring foreign labor to the U.S. on a temporary basis. The Secretary uses the collected information to determine if employers are meeting their statutory and regulatory obligations.
