In accordance with section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 U.S.C. 2273) the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on August 26, 2002, applicable to workers of Liberty Sportswear, Inc., a Division of Jean Michael's Inc. located in Willingboro, New Jersey. The notice was published in theFederal Registeron September 10, 2002 (FR 67 57456).

At the request of the State agency, the Department reviewed the certification for workers of the subject firm. The workers are engaged in the production of women's skirts.
