General Prefatory Statement

In its April 8, 2002, publication, the Department gave notice of 12 routine uses that apply to all of its systems of records, except for DOL/OASAM-5, DOL/OASAM-7, and DOL/CENTRAL-3. These 12 routine uses were presented in the General Prefatory Statement for that document, and appeared at Page 16825 of Volume 67 of the Federal Register. As a convenience to the reader of this document, we are republishing this General Prefatory Statement. This republication shall include the statement, also contained in the 2002 and 2011 publications, that pursuant to the Flexiplace Program (also known as “telework” consistent with the Telework Enhancement Act), the system location for all systems of records may be temporarily located at alternate worksites, including remote locations, employees' homes, or at geographically convenient satellite offices at some times.Start Printed Page 25775

At this time, the Department proposes two new routine uses that will apply to all of its systems of records. The first proposed routine use governs the Department's ability to disclose information to a State or local government agency in charge of issuing licenses to attorneys and health care professionals. The second proposed routine use governs the Department's ability to disclose information to the United States Department of Justice and/or the Federal Bureau of Investigation that will be included in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). The new routine uses are described in paragraphs 13 and 14 below.

A. Universal Routine Uses of the Records

The following routine uses of the records apply to and are incorporated by reference into each system of records published below unless the text of a particular notice of a system of records indicates otherwise. These routine uses do not apply to DOL/OASAM-5, Rehabilitation and Counseling File; DOL/OASAM-7, Employee Medical Records, and DOL/CENTRAL-3, Internal Investigations of Harassing Conduct.

1. To disclose the records to the Department of Justice when: (a) The agency or any component thereof; or (b) any employee of the agency in his or her official capacity; or (c) the United States Government, is a party to litigation or has an interest in such litigation, and by careful review, the agency determines that the records are both relevant and necessary to the litigation, and the use of such records by the Department of Justice is for a purpose that is compatible with the purpose for which the agency collected the records.

2. To disclose the records in a proceeding before a court or adjudicative body, when: (a) The agency or any component thereof; or (b) any employee of the agency in his or her official capacity; or (c) any employee of the agency in his or her individual capacity; or (d) the United States Government, is a party to litigation or has an interest in such litigation, and by careful review, the agency determines that the records are both relevant and necessary to the litigation, and that the use of such records is for a purpose that is compatible with the purpose for which the agency collected the records.

3. When a record on its face, or in conjunction with other information, indicates a violation or potential violation of law, whether civil, criminal or regulatory in nature, and whether arising by general statute or particular program statute, or by regulation, rule, or order issued pursuant thereto, disclosure may be made to the appropriate agency, whether Federal, foreign, State, local, or tribal, or other public authority responsible for enforcing, investigating or prosecuting such violation or charged with enforcing or implementing the statute, or rule, regulation, or order issued pursuant thereto, if the agency determines by careful review that the records or information are both relevant and necessary to any enforcement, regulatory, investigative or prosecutive responsibility of the receiving entity, and that the use of such records or information is for a purpose that is compatible with the purposes for which the agency collected the records.

4. To a Member of Congress or to a Congressional staff member in response to an inquiry of the Congressional office made at the written request of the constituent about whom the record is maintained.

5. To the National Archives and Records Administration or to the General Services Administration for records management inspections conducted pursuant to 44 U.S.C. 2904 and 2906.

6. To disclose to contractors, employees of contractors, consultants, grantees, and volunteers who have been engaged to assist the agency in the performance of or working on a contract, service, grant, cooperative agreement or other activity or service for the Federal Government.

Note: Recipients shall be required to comply with the requirements of the Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, 5 U.S.C. 552a; see also 5 U.S.C. 552a(m).

7. To the parent locator service of the Department of Health and Human Services or to other authorized persons defined by Public Law 93-647 (42 U.S.C. 653(c)) the name and current address of an individual for the purpose of locating a parent who is not paying required child support.

8. To any source from which information is requested in the course of a law enforcement or grievance investigation, or in the course of an investigation concerning retention of an employee or other personnel action, the retention of a security clearance, the letting of a contract, the retention of a grant, or the retention of any other benefit, to the extent necessary to identify the individual, inform the source of the purpose(s) of the request, and identify the type of information requested.

9. To a Federal, State, local, foreign, tribal, or other public authority of the fact that this system of records contains information relevant to the hiring or retention of an employee, the granting or retention of a security clearance, the letting of a contract, a suspension or debarment determination or the issuance or retention of a license, grant, or other benefit.

10. To the Office of Management and Budget during the coordination and clearance process in connection with legislative matters.

11. To the Department of the Treasury, and a debt collection agency with which the United States has contracted for collection services, to recover debts owed to the United States.

12. To the news media and the public when (1) the matter under investigation has become public knowledge, (2) the Solicitor of Labor determines that disclosure is necessary to preserve confidence in the integrity of the Department or is necessary to demonstrate the accountability of the Department's officers, employees, or individuals covered by this system, or (3) the Solicitor of Labor determines that there exists a legitimate public interest in the disclosure of the information, provided the Solicitor of Labor determines in any of these situations that the public interest in disclosure of specific information in the context of a particular case outweighs the resulting invasion of personal privacy.

13. To disclose information to a State or local government entity which has the legal authority to make decisions concerning the issuance, retention or revocation of licenses, certifications or registrations required to practice law or a health care profession, when requested in writing by an investigator or supervisory official of the licensing entity for the purpose of making a decision concerning the issuance, retention or revocation of the license, certification or registration of a named attorney or health care professional.

14. To disclose information to the United States Department of Justice and/or the Federal Bureau of Investigation for inclusion in the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS), pursuant to the reporting requirements of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, as amended by the NICS Improvement Amendments Act of 2007.

B. System Location—Flexiplace Programs

The following paragraph applies to and is incorporated by reference into all of the Department's systems of records under the Privacy Act, within the category entitled, SYSTEM LOCATION:

Pursuant to the Department of Labor's Flexiplace Programs (also known as Start Printed Page 25776“telework” pursuant to the Telework Enhancement Act), copies of records may be temporarily located at alternative worksites, including employees' homes or at geographically convenient satellite offices for periods of time. All appropriate safeguards will be taken at these sites.

C. Government-Wide Records

Two systems of records are reported by the Department of Labor for all federal agencies since this Department has overall responsibility for the administration of the programs in connection with which these systems of records have been compiled. It is presumed that most, if not all, federal agencies maintain systems of records comprising a portion of the government-wide systems of records. In order to avoid duplication in reporting, the Department is reporting these systems on behalf of all agencies. The Department has control over these systems to the same extent as the Office of Personnel Management has control over systems of records containing federal employee personnel records.

1.

SYSTEM NAME:

Office of Workers' Compensation Programs, Federal Employees' Compensation Act File.

SECURITY CLASSIFICATION:

Most files and data are unclassified. Files and data in certain cases have Top Secret classification, but the rules concerning their maintenance and disclosure are determined by the agency that has given the information the security classification of Top Secret.

SYSTEM LOCATION:

The central database for DOL/GOVT-1 is located at the DOL National office and the offices of OWCP's contractor. Paper claim files are located at the various OWCP district offices; claim files of employees of the Central Intelligence Agency are located at that agency. Copies of claim forms and other documents arising out of a job-related injury that resulted in the filing of a claim under the Federal Employees' Compensation Act (FECA) may also be maintained by the employing agency (and where the forms were transmitted to OWCP electronically, the original forms are maintained by the employing agency). In addition, records relating to third-party claims of FECA beneficiaries are maintained in the Division of Federal Employees' and Energy Workers' Compensation, Office of the Solicitor, United States Department of Labor, 200 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20210.

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:

Individuals and/or their survivors who file claims seeking benefits under FECA by reason of injuries sustained while in the performance of duty. FECA applies to all civilian Federal employees, including various classes of persons who provide or have provided personal service to the Government of the United States, and to other persons as defined by law such as State or local law enforcement officers, and their survivors, who were injured or killed while assisting in the enforcement of Federal law. In addition, FECA covers employees of the Civil Air Patrol, Peace Corps Volunteers, Job Corps students, Volunteers in Service to America, members of the National Teacher Corps, certain student employees, members of the Reserve Officers Training Corps, certain former prisoners of war, and Start Printed Page 25777employees of particular commissions and other agencies.

MSHA—DOL Mine Safety and Health Administration Systems of Records

DOL/MSHA-1

SYSTEM NAME:

Mine Safety and Health Administration Standardized Information System (MSIS).

SECURITY CLASSIFICATION:

None.

SYSTEM LOCATION:

Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA)—Program Evaluation and Information Resources (PEIR), U.S. Department of Labor, Denver, Colorado. Some records in paper form are located at:

MSHA—Educational Development and Policy (EPD), U.S. Department of Labor, Denver, Colorado (Health safety training and examination, qualification and certification records);

MSHA—Coal Mine Safety and Health, U.S. Department of Labor, Arlington, Virginia and district and field offices (Coal respirable dust and other enforcement records);

MSHA—Metal and Nonmetal Mine Safety and Health, U.S. Department of Labor, Arlington, Virginia and district and field offices (Exposure and other enforcement records; Radon daughter exposure records);

MSHA—Office of Assessments, Accountability, Special Enforcement and Investigations, U.S. Department of Labor, Arlington, Virginia (Discrimination investigations and civil/criminal investigations) and Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania (Penalty assessments).

CATEGORIES OF INDIVIDUALS COVERED BY THE SYSTEM:

MSHA enforcement personnel who conduct inspection or investigation activities at mines; individuals for whom personal dust samples have been submitted for analysis; individuals with evidence of the development of coal workers' pneumoconiosis (black lung disease) as defined under 30 CFR part 90; individuals who MSHA has certified or qualified to complete certain mining tasks or has approved to provide training; individuals who are indebted to the United States in the form of a civil penalty; individuals with ownership interests in mines and individuals listed as responsible for health and safety at mines; individuals involved in accidents, occupational injuries, or occupational illnesses; individuals for whom mine operators are required to calculate and record radon daughter exposure in each calendar year; individuals who have been allegedly discriminated against in violation of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended (Mine Act); individuals who are alleged to have knowingly or willfully committed violations of the Mine Act; and individuals who are criminally prosecuted or who are assessed a monetary civil penalty for violations of the Mine Act.Start Printed Page 25813

CATEGORIES OF RECORDS IN THE SYSTEM:

Records for the mine identification number and legal identity report contain information which includes: Mine (including mill) name, company name, ownership information, Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), mine location, operating status, and individuals listed as responsible for health and safety at mines. Records for mine inspection personnel time and activity, inspections, citations and orders issued to operators; sampling data on personal exposure of non-identified miners and MSHA personnel to radiation, dust, noise, and other contaminants; and comprehensive health surveys at mines.

Since 2008, MSHA requires certain individuals to submit their Taxpayer Identification Numbers (which includes Social Security Numbers), to receive their unique MSHA Individual Identification Numbers (MIIN). The MIIN is substituted for the Social Security Number (SSN), eliminating the need for miners and other individuals to provide their SSNs on certain documents submitted to MSHA.

Coal Respirable Dust records contain information such as the mine and company name, mine identification number, designated areas in the mine and designated occupations where samples were taken, occupations and SSNs of individuals sampled (before 1981) and of 30 CFR part 90 miners (after 1980), date sampled, concentration of respirable dust measured in the miners' work environment, tons of material produced during sampling shift, sampling time, and SSN of the certified person taking the sample. Since 2008, MIINs replaced SSNs for identifying Part 90 miners sampled and the certified person taking the samples. Consequently, SSNs are no longer collected on sample records.

Qualification and Certification records contain mine identification number, MSHA identification number, training course codes, instructor's name and SSN, date of training, name and SSN of persons who have taken training and examinations to become qualified or certified for certain mine tasks or approved instructors, and the results of any monitoring of an instructor. Since 2008, MIINs replaced SSNs for persons trained and for the instructors of the courses. Consequently, SSNs are no longer collected in Qualification and Certification records.

Penalty Assessment records contain proposed civil penalty assessments, civil penalty payment information, bankruptcy information, delinquent debt referrals to Treasury for collection, and civil penalty final orders of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission on individuals.

Accident, injury, and occupational illness records include the mine name and identification number; date, time, and place of occurrence; type and description of accident; and name and partial SSN for the individual injured or reporting an occupational illness. For 1978 and subsequent years, only the last four digits of the SSN are collected.

Radon Daughter Exposure records contain the mine identification number, mine name, section, township, range, county, and state of mine location, operator, time period, miner's name, current year's radon daughter exposure, and cumulative radon daughter exposure in working level months (WLM). Prior to 2008, SSNs were collected for miners exposed to radon daughters; MSHA no longer collects SSNs. A “Miner's Identification Number” is now used for these records.

Discrimination investigation records include the name, address, telephone number, social security number, occupation, place of employment, other identifying data, and allegation information from complainants, mine operators, miners, and other individuals. This material includes interview statements and other data gathered by the investigator.

Civil and criminal investigation records include the name, address, telephone number, social security number, occupation, place of employment, and other identifying data concerning individuals who are the focus of civil or criminal investigations along with allegation information from miners, mine operators, and other individuals. This material includes interview statements and other information gathered by the investigator.
