DHS/USCIS/PIA-030 E-Verify Program

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), Verification Division administers an electronic employment verification program called E-Verify. E-Verify is an Internet-based service that allows enrolled participants to confirm the employment eligibility of their newly hired employees and, in some cases, current employees to work in the United States. The USCIS Verification Division is launching new enhancements in order to improve E-Verify by reducing errors and increasing the reliability of the employment eligibility verification process. These enhancements include: (1) a new interconnection to the National Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (NLETS), (2) the use of the Person Centric Entity Resolution microservice, and (3) migration to a cloud-hosted environment. USCIS is publishing an update to this Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) to describe the collection, use, maintenance, and disclosure of personally identifiable information (PII), as well as the risks associated with these enhancements.
