This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
By letter dated April 16, 2007, a worker requested administrative reconsideration by the Department of Labor (Department) of the Notice of Negative Determination Regarding Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance applicable to workers and former workers of the subject firm. The negative determination was issued on March 14, 2007. The Department's Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on March 30, 2007 (72 FR 15168). The workers supported production at an affiliated facility in Puerto Rico.
The negative determination was based on the Department's findings that, during the relevant period, the subject firm did not shift work performed in Louisville, Colorado abroad and did not shift production work from Puerto Rico to a foreign country. The determination also stated that the subject firm sold the Puerto Rico facility to another company.
In the request for reconsideration, the workers alleged that the subject firm shifted production and support functions abroad.
Following the issuance of the negative determination, the Department received new information regarding activities at the subject firm and the affiliated Puerto Rico production facility.
Following a careful review of the workers' request for reconsideration and the above-referenced new information, the Department has determined that further investigation is appropriate.
After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, granted.Start Signature
Signed at Washington, DC, this 25th day of May 2007.
Elliott S. Kushner,
Certifying Officer, Division of Trade Adjustment Assistance.
