Date: 2012-10-02

Announcement Regarding a Change in Eligibility for Unemployment Insurance (UI) Claimants in New York in the Emergency Unemployment Compensation 2008 (EUC08) Program and the Federal-State Extended Benefits (EB) Program
Document Number: 2012-24085
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-10-01
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
Announcement regarding a change in eligibility for Unemployment Insurance (UI) claimants in New York 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 this state's EB and EUC08 trigger status: Based on data released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics on May 18, 2012, New York no longer met one of the criteria to remain ``on'' in EB, i.e., having their current three month average, seasonally adjusted total unemployment rate be at least 110 percent of one of the rates from a comparable period in one of the three prior years. This triggered New York ``off'' in the EB Program and the end of the payable period was the week ending June 10, 2012. New York has served the full 13 week ``off'' period on September 9, 2012. Given that the trigger rate in New York is currently at 8.9 percent, one look-back is at 110 percent, and the 13 week mandatory ``off'' period has concluded, New York meets the criteria to resume a High Unemployment Period in the EB Program. This payable period started with the week beginning September 10, 2012, and the maximum potential entitlement for the EB Program in New York is 20 weeks. In New York, where weeks end on a Sunday, a 13 week mandatory ``on'' period began for Tier 4 of the EUC08 Program on June 4, 2012. This mandatory 13-week ``on'' period concluded on September 2, 2012. Because the current trigger rate for New York is 8.9 percent, below the 9.0 percent threshold to remain on in Tier 4, New York has triggered ``off'' Tier 4 of the EUC08 Program and concluded an eligibility period in Tier 4 on September 2, 2012. Claimants in New York exhausting Tier 3 after September 2, 2012, can no longer establish Tier 4 eligibility.

Electronic Filing of H-2A and H-2B Labor Certification Applications Through the iCERT Visa Portal System
Document Number: 2012-23884
Type: Notice
Date: 2012-09-28
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor

This new electronic filing capacity will enhance the accessibility and quality of labor certification services, reduce the data collection and reporting burden on small employers, facilitate more streamlined business processes, and establish greater transparency in the Department's decisions. Employers or their authorized representatives will be able to submit H-2B applications electronically beginning on October 15, 2012, and H-2A applications beginning on December 10, 2012. In order to make this transition as smooth as possible, the Department will hold four webinar training sessions (two for filing in the H-2B program and two for filing in the H-2A program) to orient program users to electronic filing through the iCERT System. These sessions will be announced on the OFLC's Web site (http://www.foreignlaborcert.doleta. gov/) once dates are finalized. Employers or their authorized representatives choosing not to use this new filing option must continue to file their H-2A and H-2B applications with the Department using the traditional paper-based filing method.
