paperwork and respondent burden,
conducts a pre-clearance consultation
program to provide the general public
and federal agencies an opportunity to

comment on proposed and/or
continuing collections of information
before submitting them to the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for final
approval. This program helps to ensure
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 can be properly assessed.
In accordance with the PRA, ETA is
providing the public notice and
opportunity to comment on proposed
revisions to the ETA Form-9089,
Application for Permanent Employment
Certification; Appendix A: Foreign
Worker Information; Appendix B:
Additional Worksite Information;
Appendix C: Supplemental Information;
Appendix D: Special Recruitment for
College and University Teachers; and
the general instructions to these forms.
ETA is also seeking public comment on
a proposal to eliminate the issuance of
paper-based labor certification decisions
through the creation of a two-page Form
ETA–9089, Final Determination:
Permanent Employment Certification
Approval, which will be issued
electronically to employers granted
permanent labor certifications by DOL.
ETA is also seeking public comment
on a proposal to revise the form to allow
employers seeking to employ
professional athletes or coaches, as well
as those claiming National Interest
Waivers (NIW), to use the proposed
form and discontinue the collection of
this information on the Forms ETA–
750A, Application for Alien
Employment Certification—Offer of
Employment, and/or ETA–750B,
Application for Alien Employment
Certification—Statement of
Qualifications of Alien (OMB Control
Number 1205–0515).
Under the Immigration and
Nationality Act (INA), sections 203(b)(2)
and (b)(3) and 212(a)(5)(A), and 8 U.S.C.
1153(b)(2) and (b)(3) and 1182(a)(5)(A),
DOL and the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) have
promulgated regulations to implement
provisions of the INA at 20 CFR part 656
and 8 CFR 204.5. Consequently, the
Secretary of Labor must certify that any
foreign worker seeking to enter the
United States for the purpose of
performing skilled or unskilled labor is
not adversely affecting wages and
working conditions of U.S. workers
similarly employed and that there are
not sufficient U.S. workers able, willing,
qualified, and available to perform such
skilled or unskilled labor. In addition,
before an employer may employ any
skilled or unskilled foreign labor, it
must submit a request for certification to

the Secretary of Labor containing the
elements prescribed by the INA and the
regulations or, in limited circumstances,
where a foreign national without an
employer sponsor may apply for a NIW
with DHS.
DOL is proposing to use the proposed
Form ETA–9089, Application for
Permanent Employment Certification
(OMB Control Number 1205–0451), and
its appendices to adjudicate permanent
(PERM) employment certification
applications for foreign workers filed by
employers seeking to employ
individuals on a permanent basis. An
employer seeking a PERM employment
certification to employ a foreign worker
must submit the proposed form to DOL,
including all required appendices. Once
submitted, DOL will determine whether
the employer adequately sought
available and willing U.S. workers
qualified for the opportunity as required
under the regulations and whether U.S.
workers who applied were rejected for
lawful, job-related reasons. 20 CFR
656.24. If the DOL Certifying Officer’s
Final Determination denies certification
of the application, the regulations
provide the employer with the ability to
request reconsideration of the decision
or appeal the denial. 20 CFR 656.24 and
656.26. DOL will also use the
information collected through the
proposed form and Appendix A to
adjudicate PERM applications for
professional athletes and coaches that
currently apply using Forms ETA–750A
and ETA–750B under OMB Control
Number 1205–0515, Workforce
Innovation Funds Grants Reporting and
Recordkeeping Requirements.
DHS will also use Form ETA–9089 for
the Job Offer Requirement of the NIW
process, which exempts foreign workers
from the job offer requirement if their
expertise is in the national interest of
the U.S. In addition, under 20 CFR
656.15, employers of foreign workers
who are in occupations that meet DOL
regulatory requirements for being
designated as ‘‘Schedule A—Shortage
Occupations’’ must apply for an
employment certification using Form
ETA–9089 and submit an uncertified
form directly to DHS. Similarly, under
20 CFR 656.16, employers of foreign
workers who are sheepherders must
apply for an employment certification
using Form ETA–9089 and submit an
uncertified form directly to DHS. When
Form ETA–9089 is submitted to DHS
directly, DHS will use the form to
analyze the foreign worker’s background
and experience for NIWs, Schedule A
occupations, and sheepherders.
This information collection is subject
to the PRA. A Federal agency generally
cannot conduct or sponsor a collection

of information, and the public is
generally not required to respond to an
information collection unless OMB,
under the PRA, approves it and the
collection tool displays a currently valid
OMB Control Number. In addition,
notwithstanding any other provisions of
law, no person shall generally be subject
to penalty for failing to comply with a
collection of information that does not
display a valid OMB Control Number.
See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6.
Interested parties are encouraged to
provide comments to the contact shown
in the ADDRESSES section. Comments
must be written to receive
consideration, and they will be
summarized and included in the request
for OMB approval of the final ICR. In
order to help ensure appropriate
consideration, comments should
mention OMB Control Number 1205–
0451.
Submitted comments will also be a
matter of public record for this ICR and
posted on the internet, without
redaction. DOL encourages commenters
not to include personally identifiable
information, confidential business data,
or other sensitive statements/
information in any comments.
DOL is particularly interested in
comments that:
• Evaluate whether the proposed
collection of information is necessary
for the proper performance of the
functions of the agency, including
whether the information will have
practical utility;
• Evaluate the accuracy of the
agency’s estimate of the burden of the
proposed collection of information,
including the validity of the
methodology and assumptions used;
• Enhance the quality, utility, and
clarity of the information to be
collected; and
• Minimize the burden of the
collection of information on those who
are to respond, including through the
use of appropriate automated,
electronic, mechanical, or other
technological collection techniques or
other forms of information technology
(e.g., permitting electronic submission
of responses).
