In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended (“Act”), 19 U.S.C. 2273, the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on February 4, 2010, applicable to workers of EDS, an HP Company (Re-branded as HP—Enterprise Services) Plano, Texas, including on-site leased workers listed above. The notice was published in the Federal Register on March 12, 2010 (75 FR 11924).
At the request of a company official, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in activities related to information technology (IT) services.
New information shows that worker separations have occurred involving virtual employees across the United States under the control of the Plano, Texas location of EDS, an HP Company (Re-branded as HP—Enterprise Services). These employees provided various activities related to the supply of information technology (IT) services.
Based on these findings, the Department is amending this certification to include virtual employees of the Plano, Texas facility of the subject firm working off-site across the United States.
The intent of the Department's certification is to include all workers of the subject firm who were adversely affected by a shift in information technology (IT) services to India, Brazil and Argentina.
