Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

This rule describes the record keeping requirements of the Department of Workforce Services (Department), as well as the Department's confidentiality rules pursuant to Section 35A-4- 312, which sets forth the requirement that employers keep records and that those records be available to the Department. The statutory provision also provides when those records can be disclosed.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

The Department has not received any written comments during the last five years or since the last five-year review period.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule is essential to tell employers what records must be kept and that the Department is authorized to inspect those records. This rule also provides when and under what circumstances any records will be available and to whom. Most employer records are private but can be used for limited purposes when necessary for the administration of the program. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
