At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of custom made carpets and rugs.
The subject firm originally named Jack and Joel, Inc., was renamed Edward Fields, Inc. in April 2005. The State agency reports that workers' wages at the subject firm are being reported under the Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax account for Jack and Joel, Inc., College Point, New York.
Accordingly, the Department is amending the certification to properly reflect this matter.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of Edward Fields, Inc. who were adversely affected by increased company imports.
The amended notice applicable to TA-W-57,805 is hereby issued as follows:
All workers of Edward Fields, Inc., formerly known as Jack and Joel, Inc., College Point, New York, who became totally or partially separated from employment on or after July 28, 2004, through September 23, 2007, are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, and are also eligible to apply for alternative trade adjustment assistance under Section 246 of the Trade Act of 1974.Start Signature
