SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces the ADEA of 1967, as amended, 29 U.S.C. 621 et seq., which prohibits discrimination against employees and applicants for employment who are age 40 or older. Congress amended the ADEA by enacting the Older Workers Benefit Protection Act of 1990 (OWBPA), Public Law 101-433, 104 Stat. 983 (1990), to clarify the prohibitions against discrimination on the basis of age. In Title II of OWBPA, Congress addressed waivers of rights and claims under the ADEA, amending section 7 of the ADEA by adding a new subsection (f), 29 U.S.C. 626(f). The provisions of Title II of OWBPA do require employers to provide certain information to employees (but not to EEOC) in writing. The regulation at 29 CFR 1625.22 reiterates those requirements.

The EEOC seeks extension without change of the information collection requirements contained in this recordkeeping regulation. On March 24, 2000, the Commission published a 60-Day Notice informing the public of its intent to request an extension of the Start Printed Page 35932informational requirements from the Office of Management and Budget. 65 FR 15907.
