AGENCY:

Privacy Office, Department of Homeland Security.

ACTION:

Notice of Privacy Act System of Records.

SUMMARY:

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, the Department of Homeland Security proposes to update and reissue a current Department of Homeland Security system of records titled, “Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services—011 E-Verify Program System of Records.” The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services E-Verify program allows employers to electronically verify the employment authorization of newly hired employees. To provide individuals the ability to learn about their work authorization status information, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services also operates a free service called Self-Check. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is launching enhanced features to the Self Check service that permits individuals who successfully complete a Self Check identification process the opportunity to establish a myE-Verify account. The information collected to register and maintain a myE-Verify account is covered by the “Department of Homeland Security/ALL—037 E-Authentication System of Records” Start Printed Page 46853published elsewhere in the Federal Register. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is updating this System of Records Notice to include the operational data previously covered by “Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services—013 Self Check System of Records,” which is being consolidated into DHS/ALL—037 E-Authentication System of Records and this System of Records Notice. The Self Check query, query results, and Self Lock transaction history will now be maintained by this updated System of Records Notice. The initial launch of myE-Verify will allow access to a feature called “Self Lock,” which enables an account holder to prevent the use of his or her Social Security number in E-Verify and Self Check. Additional myE-Verify account features such as Case History, Case Tracker, and Document Expiration Reminders will be made available in future releases. The Department of Homeland Security is updating this Privacy Act System of Records Notice for the E-Verify Program in order to provide notice that E-Verify is updating the “Category of Individuals,” “Category of Records,” “Purpose(s),” and “Record Source Categories” to account for additional information necessary to operate myE-Verify account features. E-Verify is updating the “Category of Individuals” to include individuals that successfully use the E-Verify Self Check service to check employment eligibility, which was previously covered by the E-Verify Self Check System of Records, and individuals who have locked their Social Security number in E-Verify. E-Verify is also updating the “Category of Records” to include Self Check query information, which was previously covered by the E-Verify Self Check System of Records Notice, and Social Security number lock information. E-Verify is updating the “Purpose(s)” to include providing employment authorization information to individuals seeking to check employment eligibility under the Immigration and Naturalization Act. This system will also enable individuals to access features concerning the use of their personally identifiable information in E-Verify and Self Check, such as the ability to lock their Social Security number to prevent its use in E-Verify and Self Check.

This updated system will be included in the Department of Homeland Security's inventory of record systems.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

In accordance with the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) proposes to update and reissue a current DHS system of records titled, “DHS/USCIS-011 E-Verify Program System of Records.” The USCIS E-Verify Program allows employers to confirm employment eligibility of newly hired employees.

To provide individuals the ability to learn about their work authorization status information, USCIS operates a free service called Self-Check. USCIS is launching enhanced features to the Self Check service that permit individuals who successfully complete a Self Check case to establish a myE-Verify account. The information collected to register and maintain a myE-Verify account, including information collected for E-authentication purposes, is covered by the “DHS/ALL-037 E-Authentication System of Records” published elsewhere in the Federal Register. DHS/ALL-037 E-Authentication System of Records and this System of Records Notice consolidate the previously issued “Department of Homeland Security U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services-013 Self Check System of Records.” As a result of this consolidation, by this notice, DHS intends to remove DHS/USCIS-013 from its inventory of systems of records.

The initial launch of myE-Verify will allow access to a feature called “Self Lock,” which will enable an account holder to prevent the use of his or her Social Security number (SSN) in E-Verify and Self Check. Additional myE-Verify account features such as Case History, Case Tracker, and Document Expiration Reminders will be made available in future releases. DHS is updating this Privacy Act System of Records Notice for the E-Verify Program to provide notice that E-Verify is updating the “Category of Individuals,” “Category of Records,” “Purpose(s),” and “Record Source Categories” to account for the additional information collection necessary to operate myE-Verify account features. E-Verify is updating the “Category of Individuals” to include (1) individuals that successfully use the E-Verify Self Check service to check employment eligibility, which was previously covered by the E-Verify Self Check System of Records, and (2) individuals who have locked their SSN in E-Verify. E-Verify is also updating the “Category of Records” to include (1) Self Check query information, which was previously covered by the E-Verify Self Check System of Records Notice, and (2) SSN lock information. E-Verify is updating “Purpose(s)” to include providing employment authorization information to individuals seeking to check employment eligibility under the Immigration and Naturalization Act. This system will also enable individuals to access features concerning the use of their personally identifiable information in E-Verify and Self Check such as the ability to lock their SSN to prevent its use in E-Verify and Self Check.

This updated system will be included in DHS's inventory of record systems.

II. Privacy Act

The Privacy Act embodies fair information practice principles in a statutory framework governing the means by which Federal Government agencies collect, maintain, use, and disseminate individuals' records. The Privacy Act applies to information that is maintained in a “system of records.” A “system of records” is a group of any records under the control of an agency from which information is retrieved by the name of an individual or by some identifying number, symbol, or other identifying particular assigned to the individual. In the Privacy Act, an individual is defined to encompass U.S. Start Printed Page 46854citizens and lawful permanent residents. As a matter of policy, DHS extends administrative Privacy Act protections to all individuals when systems of records maintain information on U.S. citizens, lawful permanent residents, and visitors.

Below is the description of the DHS/USCIS-011 E-Verify Program System of Records.

In accordance with 5 U.S.C. 552a(r), DHS has provided a report of this system of records to the Office of Management and Budget and to Congress.

Purpose(s):

This system provides employment authorization information to employers Start Printed Page 46856participating in E-Verify and to individuals seeking to check employment eligibility under the INA. This system will also enable individuals to access features concerning the use of their personally identifiable information in E-Verify and Self Check such as the ability to lock their SSN to prevent its use in E-Verify and Self Check.

  • Investigating duplicate or incomplete enrollments by employers;
  • Inappropriate enrollments by individuals posing as employers;
  • Verifications that are not performed within the required time limits; and
  • Cases referred by and between E-Verify and the Department of Justice Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices, or other law enforcement entities.

Additionally, the information in E-Verify may be used for program management and analysis, program outreach, customer service, and preventing or deterring further use of stolen identities in E-Verify.

Routine uses of records maintained in the system, including categories of users and the purposes of such uses:

In addition to those disclosures generally permitted under 5 U.S.C. 552a(b) of the Privacy Act, all or a portion of the records or information contained in this system may be disclosed outside DHS, except as limited by statute, as a routine use pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552a(b)(3).
