      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 September 19, 2019, applicable to

notice of determination has yet to be published in the Federal 
Register.
      At the request of the State Workforce Office, the

     Based on these findings, the Department is amending this 
certification to include workers whose wages were reported under 
APC Workforce Solutions LLC, working on-site at the Dallas, 
Texas location of Workforce Logiq.
      The amended notice applicable to TA-W-95,056 is hereby

WORKFORCE LOGIQ
DALLAS, TEXAS

Certification Regarding Eligibility
To Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance

      In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974, as 
amended ("Act"), 19 U.S.C. § 2273, the Department of Labor 
herein presents the results of an investigation regarding 
certification of eligibility to apply for worker adjustment 
assistance.
      The group eligibility requirements for workers of a firm 
under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 U.S.C. § 2272(a), are 
satisfied if the following criteria are met:
	(1)	 a significant number or proportion of the 
workers in such workers' firm have become totally or 
partially separated, or are threatened to become 
totally or partially separated;
	(2)(B)(i)(I)	there has been a shift by the workers' 
firm to a foreign country in the production of 
articles or supply of services like or directly 
competitive with those produced/supplied by the 
workers' firm; OR
	         (II)	there has been an acquisition from a 
	         foreign country by the workers' firm of 
              articles/services that are like or directly
              competitive with those produced/supplied by 
              the workers' firm; AND
(ii)	the shift/acquisition must have contributed 
importantly to the workers' separation or 
threat of separation.  
  
      The investigation was initiated in response to a petition 
filed on August 8, 2019 on behalf of workers of Workforce 
Logiq, Dallas, Texas (Workforce Logiq-Dallas).  The workers' 
firm is engaged in activities related to the supply of 
background check services.  
      During the course of the investigation, information was 
collected from the workers' firm. 
      Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant 
number or proportion of the workers in such workers' firm have 
become totally or partially separated, or are threatened to 
become totally or partially separated.   
      Section 222(a)(2)(B) has been met because the workers' 
firm has shifted to a foreign country the supply of a(n) service 
like or directly competitive with the service supplied by the 
workers which contributed importantly to worker group 
separations at Workforce Logiq-Dallas.
Conclusion
	After careful review of the facts obtained in the 
investigation, I determine that workers of Workforce Logiq, 
Dallas Texas, who are engaged in activities related to the 
supply of background check services, meet the worker group 
certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the Act, 19 
U.S.C. § 2272(a). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 
U.S.C. § 2273, I make the following certification:

"All workers of Workforce Logiq, Dallas, Texas, who became 
totally or partially separated from employment on or after 
August 7, 2018 through two years from the date of 
certification, and all workers in the group threatened with 
total or partial separation from employment on the date of 
certification through two years from the date of 
certification, are eligible to apply for adjustment 
assistance under Chapter 2 of Title II of the Trade Act of 
1974, as amended."
Signed in Washington, D.C. this 19th day of September 2019.
