Because of legal precedents that have indicant that President has the authority to appoint "Officers of the United States" under the Appointment Clause of the Constitution and the case Buckley vs. Valeo 424 , 118-43 U.S. 1 (1976).
I would argue that Labor Commission is consider a Lesser Officer and that their is role include the enforcement of laws which means the President has the ability to appoint them in a timely manner to ensure the laws and standards are upheld.
