DHS is launching the “Known Employer” Pilot Project on October 1, 2015. Under this pilot project, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will pre-adjudicate certain employer requirements of selected immigrant and nonimmigrant visa classifications. The Known Employer Pilot Project is centered on the Known Employer Document Library (KEDL), which allows participating employers to upload supplemental evidence that would normally have to be included in multiple individual petitions. This initial Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) discusses the pilot project and evaluates the privacy risks and mitigations associated with the collection, use, and maintenance of personally identifiable information (PII). USCIS plans to update this PIA for the implementation of a permanent program, should it occur.
