This action deletes reference to the Employment Standards Administration in the regulations administered by WHD. Additionally, this action updates Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control numbers associated with information collections in the appropriate regulations. WHD was assigned new control numbers by OMB and this action updates those references in the regulations to the current corresponding OMB control number. Further, this action updates cross-references that were not revised in the FMLA Final Rule published February 25, 2015.updating-regulations-issued-under-the-fair-labor-standards-act-service-contract-act-davis-bacon-andFR-Doc-2016-31293

The proposed changes based on the WTC Health Program's List and related provisions would provide a means for claimants to establish that certain public safety officers with chronic, often latent, health conditions sustained a line-of-duty injury under the PSOB Act. The proposed payment offset provisions are intended to implement statutory amendments to the PSOB Act requiring such offset and to facilitate claims processing. Similarly, the proposed rule implementing the statutory presumption associated with certain heart attacks, strokes, and vascular ruptures is intended to amend the current regulation to conform to recent amendments to the PSOB Act and to improve the processing of such claims.public-safety-officers-benefits-programFR-Doc-2016-16086

Phased retirement is a human resources tool that will allow full-time employees to work a part-time schedule and draw partial retirement benefits during employment. The ``Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act,'' or ``MAP-21,'' requires OPM to publish regulations implementing phased retirement under the Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) and the Federal Employees' Retirement System (FERS). The final rule informs agencies and employees about who may elect phased retirement, what benefits are provided during phased retirement, how OPM intends to compute the annuity payable during and after phased retirement, and how employees may fully retire after a period of phased retirement. The final rule does not address every administrative detail of the phased retirement process. OPM will be issuing separate guidance to assist agencies and employees with administrative and procedural matters that do not need to be addressed in this rule. Employees may not enter phased retirement or submit applications for phased retirement to OPM until 90 days after publication of this final rule.phased-retirementFR-Doc-2014-18681

Pursuant to the Act, with certain exceptions, Treasury has responsibility for payment of benefits based on service accrued as of June 30, 1997, under the retirement plans for District of Columbia teachers, police officers, and firefighters. Benefits for service after that date, and certain other benefits, are funded by the District of Columbia. These regulations amend earlier regulations which implement the provisions of the Act, establishing the methodology for determining the split between the Federal and District obligations. The effective date was delayed pending completion of Treasury's new automated retirement system, ``System to Administer Retirement'' (STAR), which replaced the District's legacy automated retirement system. While the new system has been completed, the amended regulations establish additional rules and provide additional examples of benefit calculation scenarios, a need identified during systems development. The amendments have minimal financial impact and were introduced to simplify calculations and maintain consistency with the general principles established in the original regulations.federal-benefit-payments-under-certain-district-of-columbia-retirement-plansFR-Doc-2012-25562

That change inadvertently stated that the revised factor would apply to deaths occurring on or after October 1, 2004. The revised factor, however, applies to deaths occurring on or after October 1, 2011. Therefore, this document corrects the final regulation by revising this date. Additionally, this document corrects a misspelling in the heading to Appendix A to subpart C of part 843 that was included with the rule.technical-amendments-to-federal-employees-retirement-system-present-value-conversion-factors-forFR-Doc-2011-22873
