Section 274A(e), involving a specific individual employer. The 
exemptions are necessary to avoid interference during the conduct of 
criminal, civil, or administrative actions or investigations. 
Specifically, the exemptions are necessary to prevent subjects of 
investigations from frustrating the investigatory process. The 
exemptions are necessary to avoid interference during the conduct of 
civil or administrative actions or investigations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:  In the notice section of today's Federal 
Register, the Department of Justice provides a description of the 
``Worksite Enforcement Activity and Records Index (LYNX), JUSTICE/INS-
025.'' This order relates to individuals rather than small business 
entities. Nevertheless, pursuant to the requirements of the Regulatory 
Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-612, it is hereby stated that the order 
will not have ``a significant economic impact on a substantial number 
of small entities.''
