implementing regulations at 20 CFR
702.349(b) allow parties and their
representatives to waive certified mail
service and consent to electronic service
instead. The information collected will

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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: President
Barack Obama signed Executive Order
13496 (E.O. 13496) on January 30, 2009,
requiring certain Government
contractors and subcontractors to post
notices informing their employees of
their rights as employees under Federal
labor laws. The Order also provides the
text of contractual provisions that
Federal Government contracting
departments and agencies must include
in every Government contract, except
for collective bargaining agreements and
contracts for purchases under the
Simplified Acquisition Threshold.
OLMS administers the enforcement
provisions of Executive Order 13496,
while the compliance evaluation and
investigatory provisions are handled by
the Department’s Office of Federal
Contract Compliance Programs
(OFCCP), pursuant to the Order’s
implementing regulatory provisions (29
CFR part 471). Complaints can be filed
with both agencies.
The Department seeks extension of
the current approval to collect this
information. An extension is necessary
because if this information collection is
not conducted, E.O. 13496 could not be
enforced through the complaint
procedure.
E.O. 13496 advances the
Administration’s goal of promoting
economy and efficiency of Federal
government procurement by ensuring
that workers employed in the private
sector as a result of Federal government
contracts are informed of their rights to
engage in union activity and collective
bargaining. Knowledge of such basic
statutory rights promotes stable labormanagement relations, thus reducing
costs to the Federal government.
The contractual provisions require
contractors and subcontractors to post a
notice, created by the Secretary of
Labor, informing employees of their
rights under the National Labor
Relations Act. The notice also provides
a statement of the policy of the United
States to encourage collective
bargaining, as well as a list of activities
that are illegal under the Act. The notice
concludes with a general description of
the remedies to which employees may
be entitled if these rights have been
violated and contact information for
further information about those rights
and remedies, as well as enforcement
procedures.
The clause also requires contractors to
include the same clause in their

nonexempt subcontracts and purchase
orders, and describes generally the
sanctions, penalties, and remedies that
may be imposed if the contractor fails to
satisfy its obligations under the Order
and the clause.
The regulatory provisions
implementing E.O. 13496 (29 CFR part
471) include the language of the
required notices, and they explain
posting and contractual requirements,
the complaint process, the investigatory
process, and sanctions, penalties, and
remedies that may be imposed if the
contractor or subcontractor fails to
comply with its obligations under the
Order. Specifically, 29 CFR part
471.11(c) sets forth the procedures that
the Department must use when
accepting written complaints alleging
that a contractor doing business with
the Federal government has failed to
post the notice required by the
Executive Order.
The Department continues to estimate
a total of 10 respondents with an equal
amount of responses. Since the ICR was
last approved in 2019, the Department
has received 1 complaint. The
Department maintains the estimate of 10
complaints for purposes of this renewal
request. The Department continues to
estimate that it will take an employee
1.28 hours per complaint, for a total of
12.8, rounded to 13 hours.
Additionally, employees will incur
costs of $0.62 per complaint in capital/
start-up costs ($0.58 for standard-sized,
rectangular envelopes postage in
January 2022 1 + $0.03 for an envelope
+ $0.01 for paper) for a total cost of
$6.20. (Although employees will submit
many if not all complaints via email, the
Department assumes, conservatively,
that it will receive all via mail.) The
total cost for the estimated 10
complaints is therefore $6.20. There are
no ongoing operation/maintenance costs
associated with this information
collection.
Comments submitted in response to
this notice will be summarized and/or
included in the request for Office of
Management and Budget approval of the
information collection request; they will
also become a matter of public record.
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 the OMB
approves it and 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
