Announcement of Public Briefings on Using Redesigned Labor
Certification Forms and Stakeholder Meeting

AGENCY: Employment and Training Administration, Labor.

ACTION: Notice.

—————————————

SUMMARY: The Office of Foreign Labor Certification (OFLC) in the
Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration (ETA) has
been re-engineering several of its program forms to improve the
information it collects from the public. These changes are intended to
improve the application to and day-to-day operation of OFLC programs.
The system re-engineering will impact the program for the Temporary
Employment of Nonimmigrants in Professional, Specialty Occupations, and
as Fashion Models (H-1B, H-1B1, and E-3). The Form ETA 9035, the Labor
Condition Application (OMB control number 1205-0310) used for the H-1B,
H-1B1, and E-3 programs, was redesigned and submitted for public
comment, 73 FR 36357, Jun. 26, 2008, and for review by the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB), 73 FR 66259, Nov. 7, 2008. In addition,
the Permanent Labor Certification Program (PERM), OFLC will be
implementing changes to the electronic filing process and is
implementing a revised application form. The redesigned Form ETA 9089
(OMB control number 1205-451) has been approved by OMB subject to
review of the final electronic version.

ETA is issuing this notice to announce that OFLC will offer two
public briefings to educate stakeholders, program users, and other
interested members of the public on using the re-engineered 9035 and
9089 application forms, and the online portal system by which most
users file program applications.

ETA will also hold a stakeholder meeting in San Diego, California
on February 3, 2009.

As currently planned, the two briefings will take place in
February, 2009 in San Diego and Baltimore, Maryland. This notice
provides the public with locations, dates, and registration information
regarding the briefings.
