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 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. ETA is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data in the following information collections: Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Control Number 1205-0466, currently containing ETA Form 9141, Application for Prevailing Wage Determination, and ETA Form 9142, Application for Temporary Employment Certification, which expires on October 31, 2012; and OMB Control Number 1205-0404 containing the H-2A Certification Letter known as ETA-9144. The Department proposes to divide 1205-0466 into three distinct information collection requests (ICRs), segregated by program, and to merge 1205-0404 into the collection that remains in 1205-0466. Specifically, the Department proposes to separate out ETA Form 9141, Application for Prevailing Wage Determination into its own collection, 1205-NEW2. The Department also proposes to divide the ETA Form 9142, Application for Temporary Employment Certification, into two collections, one to remain as 1205- 0466 and to contain the ETA Form 9142A, H-2A Application for Temporary Employment Certification and Appendix A, along with other information collection burdens for the H-2A Temporary Labor Certification Program, while the second would be 1205-NEW1 and contain ETA Form 9142B, H-2B Application for Temporary Employment Certification and Appendix B, along with all the information collection burdens for the H-2B Temporary Labor Certification Program. Once separated, 1205-0404, which contains one additional information collection burden for the H-2A program, would be merged with 1205-0466 so that most of the H-2A information collection burdens can be accounted for in one ICR. In order to meet its responsibilities under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), the Department needs to extend the existing collection of information pertaining to programs requiring prevailing wage determinations and the H-2A and H-2B programs for temporary employment certification in agricultural and non-agricultural occupations. The Department is utilizing this opportunity to separate the collections into more manageable and easy to understand ICRs.

Announcement Regarding States Triggering “On” and “Off” in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits (EB) Program
Document Number: 2012-18535
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-07-31
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Announcement regarding states triggering ``on'' and ``off'' in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits (EB) Program. The U.S. Department of Labor (Department) produces trigger notices indicating which states qualify for both EB and EUC08 benefits, and provides the beginning and ending dates of payable periods for each qualifying state. The trigger notices covering state eligibility for these programs can be found at: http://ows.doleta.gov/unemploy/claims arch.asp. The following changes have occurred since the publication of the last notice regarding states' EB and EUC08 trigger status: Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on June 15, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Nevada (11.7%), New Jersey (9.1%), and Rhode Island (11.1%) did not meet one of the necessary criteria to remain on in the EB program: Having a rate at least ten percent greater than the comparable rate in any of the three prior years. This triggered these states ``off'' the EB program with the week ending June 16, 2012. The end of the payable period in Nevada, New Jersey, and Rhode Island in the EB program was July 7, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on June 15, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for New Mexico and Texas fell below the 7.0% trigger threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 3 of the EUC 2008 program. As a result, the maximum potential entitlement for these states in the EUC program decreased from 47 weeks to 34 weeks. The week ending July 7, 2012, was the last week in which EUC claimants in these states could exhaust Tier 2, and establish Tier 3 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 3 after July 7, 2012. Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on June 15, 2012, the three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for Florida, Georgia, and Mississippi fell below the 9.0% trigger threshold to remain ``on'' in Tier 4 of the EUC 2008 program. As a result, the maximum potential entitlement for these states in the EUC program decreased from 53 weeks to 47 weeks. The week ending July 7, 2012, was the last week in which EUC claimants in these states could exhaust Tier 3, and establish Tier 4 eligibility. Under the phase-out provisions, claimants can receive any remaining entitlement they have in Tier 4 after July 7, 2012. The week ending June 30, 2012, concluded a mandatory 13- week ``off'' period in the Virgin Islands for Tier 3 in the EUC 2008 program. Because the current estimated trigger rate for the Virgin Islands is 7.7%, a payable period in Tier 3 has resumed beginning July 1, 2012, and the first payable week for eligible claimants there was the week ending July 7, 2012. With the release of national unemployment data by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on July 6, 2012, the estimated three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate for the Virgin Islands rose above the 9.0% threshold necessary to trigger ``on'' in Tier 4 of the EUC 2008 program. The 13 week mandatory ``off'' period for the Virgin Islands in Tier 4 of the EUC 2008 program concluded May 26, 2012, so the Virgin Islands triggered ``on'' to Tier 4. As a result of this, the maximum potential entitlement for the Virgin Islands in the EUC 2008 program will increase from 47 weeks to 53 weeks. The week beginning July 22, 2012, will be the first week in which EUC claimants in the Virgin Islands who have exhausted Tier 3, and are otherwise eligible, can establish Tier 4 eligibility.
