Notice of Public Hearing
Under IC 4-22-2-24
, notice is hereby given that on July 10, 2012, at 9:00 a.m., at the Indiana Government Center South, 302 West Washington Street, Conference Center Room 4, Indianapolis, Indiana, the Department of Labor will hold a public hearing on a proposed rule to add 610 IAC 11
to establish procedures for filing and adjudication of complaints of violations of Indiana's Right to Work statute (IC 22-6-6
Statement of justification of costs and requirements under IC 4-22-2-24
(d)(3): The Department of Labor has the authority to adopt this rule under IC 22-6-6-11
. The rule imposes minimal procedural requirements on those filing and responding to complaints to ensure due process for both parties. If the Department of Labor did not provide this administrative enforcement process, the only recourse in case of an alleged violation would be a court action. The financial and other costs of a court action would be significantly greater than the costs of the Department of Labor's administrative process. Therefore, the benefits of the orderly administrative process set out in this rule exceed its minimal costs. The Department of Labor did not rely on any data, studies, or analyses in making this determination.
Comments on this proposed rule may be addressed to Rick Ruble, Indiana Department of Labor, 402 W. Washington St., Room W195, Indianapolis, IN 46204.
Copies of these rules are now on file at the Indiana Government Center South, 402 West Washington Street, Room W195 and Legislative Services Agency, Indiana Government Center North, 100 North Senate Avenue, Room N201, Indianapolis, Indiana and are open for public inspection.
