Comment Request for Information Collection for Form ETA-9142A, H-2A Application for Temporary Employment Certification, and Appendix A (OMB Control Number 1205-0466), Revision
The Department of Labor (Department or DOL), 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. Currently, the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning the collection of data on the Form ETA- 9142A, H-2A Application for Temporary Employment Certification, and Appendix A (OMB Control Number 1205-0466), which expire on March 31, 2016. A copy of the proposed information collection request can be obtained free of charge by contacting the office listed below in the addressee section of this notice. The forms are used by employers in the H-2A temporary agricultural employment-based program to collect information that demonstrates compliance with program requirements.
