Subject: Department of Labor verification of employment at certain facilities

 

Background: Since the inception of the Energy Employees' Occupational Illness Compensation Program, the Department of Energy (DOE) has been responsible for conducting employment verifications for each claim received by the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC). For certain atomic weapon employer (AWE) facilities and beryllium (Be) vendor facilities, DOE did not initially have access to personnel records that could verify employment. In order to overcome this difficulty, DOE made arrangements with corporate entities to obtain information concerning past or present employees of particular facilities. These corporate verifiers had access to personnel records that were otherwise unavailable to the government. Using information collected from these corporate verifiers, DOE was able to complete form EE-5. Unfortunately, the DOE was unable to identify a corporate verifier for some of the AWE or Be vendor facilities. For employees who worked at a facility for which there are no employment records and no corporate verifier, DOE has been unable to conduct employment verification.

 

In an effort to streamline the process of employment verification, the DEEOIC will assist DOE in the process of verifying employment for employees who worked at AWE and Be vendor facilities for which corporate verifiers have been identified. In addition, for those facilities for which the DOE has not identified a corporate verifier and does not have access to employment records, DOL will request employment information from the claimant, and if necessary, the Social Security Administration (SSA).

The DOE has produced three lists naming facilities for which they (1) are unable to obtain any employment verification documentation, (2) have identified a corporate employment verifier or (3) have access to employment records. The CE will reference these lists to ascertain the correct routing procedure for employment verification.

 

Reference: 20 CFR 30.105

 

Purpose: To notify the District Offices of the process for verifying employment at certain AWE or Be vendor facilities.

 

Applicability: All staff.

 

Actions:

 

1. Attached to this bulletin are three lists (Attachments 1, 2 and 3). The lists are designated as follows:

 

List 1: No Corporate Verifier

 

This list provides the names of AWE and Be vendor facilities where the DOE has no employment records and has not been able to locate a verifier.

 

List 2: Known Corporate Verifiers

 

This list provides the names of AWE and Be vendor facilities where the DOE has identified a corporate entity that owns the facilities' employment records. Moreover, the list will provide specific instructions for how each corporate entity is to be contacted with requests for employment verification.

 

List 3: DOE Verifiers

 

This list provides the names of AWE and Be vendor facilities where the Department of Energy, or one of its contractors, owns the employment records, and DOE is able to verify employment directly.

 

2. Each list should be maintained by the District Office and distributed to all CEs. When necessary, revision to the lists will be transmitted to the district offices in the form of an updated bulletin.

 

3. Resource centers no longer submit employment verification packages to the DOE. Instead all new claim packages prepared at a resource center are referred directly to the responsible District Office (DO). Once received by the DO, the case create clerk will input the appropriate tracking data and refer the claim to the appropriate claims examiner (CE).

 

4. Upon receipt of a new primary claim, the CE is to determine whether a covered condition is being claimed on the EE-1 or EE-2. If there is no indication that a covered condition is claimed, the CE is to develop medical documentation to establish the existence of a covered condition. A primary claim is not to be developed for employment verification unless a covered condition has been claimed.

 

5. After it is determined that a covered medical condition has been claimed, the CE is to review the employment history provided on the EE-3, Employment History form. For each potential DOE employer, contractor or subcontractor, AWE, or Be employer, the CE will need to determine the course of action necessary to obtain employment verification. This process begins with a comparison of the claimed employers provided on the EE-3 and lists 1, 2 or 3.

 

6. If the CE reviews the employment history and notes a claimed employer from List 1 or 2, a single copy of the DOE Verification of Employment Memorandum is to be printed out and spindled to the case file (Attachment 4). This memorandum substitutes for the EE-5. The insertion of the memo into the case file record will serve as DOE's response to the claimed employment.

 

7. For a claimed employer appearing on List 1: No Corporate Verifier, the CE will first review any evidence substantiating the period of employment. This evidence can include contemporaneous evidence, such as wage statements, tax documentation, union records, pension information or affidavits. The CE must determine whether the documentation is sufficient to verify the entire claimed period of employment. It is not necessary for the evidence to be so conclusive as to substantiate the employment beyond all possible doubt. However, the evidence should be of sufficient quality to convince the CE of the validity of the period of employment being claimed. The CE should apply reasonable discretion in weighing any evidence submitted by a claimant.

 

The CE should be aware of the fact that the amount of documentation required depends on the type of claim. For a claim of beryllium illness, the evidence need only establish the presence of the employee at a designated vendor. Conversely, for a cancer claim, the CE would need to verify the entire period of employment being claimed. The CE can accept as factual any period of employment for which there is sufficient and reliable documentation.

 

If the evidence is deficient for any period of claimed employment, the CE is to prepare correspondence to the claimant requesting additional information. Attached to the request should be a blank SSA-581 form (Attachment 5). The SSA-581 authorizes the release of earnings information from the Social Security Administration. The CE should advise the claimant in the cover letter that the SSA-581 should be completed for the reason that it may become necessary for the Department of Labor to obtain earnings records from the Social Security Administration. Once the correspondence is prepared and released to the claimant, ECMS is to be updated with a DE status code.

 

The claimant should be provided up to thirty days to respond. If after 30 days, the claimant does not produce any new evidence or provides evidence that does not support the period of claimed employment, the CE should prepare the case for referral to the SSA. The CE, at his or her discretion, can grant an extension to the period of time the claimant may take to produce documentation. However, the period of time permissible is not to exceed sixty days.

 

The package to SSA should include a cover letter requesting SSA to perform an earnings search on the named employee. Attached to the cover letter should be SSA form 581 that indicates the name of the employee, employee SSN, and the years of employment to be researched. In addition, a signed release from the claimant must be attached. Upon release of the package to the SSA, the CE will input code SS.

 

Depending on the response from the SSA, the CE is to either accept the period of employment as verified or deny the claimed period of employment due to lack of viable documentation. The CE should document receipt of the SSA response by entering code SR into ECMS.

 

8. For any employer named appearing on List 2: Known Corporate Verifiers, the CE is to review the "Contacting Instructions" provided by the DOE. This is an attachment to List 2 that provides details concerning how a CE is to contact individual corporate verifiers. Each corporate verifier has particular requirements concerning the information to be provided. These corporations have no obligation to supply information to DOL, as there is no formal contract or payment to them. Therefore, it is important that the CE complies with the instructions listed in the "Contacting Instructions."

 

It is not necessary for the CE to submit a copy of documentation from the case file to the corporate verifier. Instead, a cover letter providing the details of the request should be submitted. In most instances, the cover letter will include the employee name, SSN, date of birth, employer name and the dates of claimed employment. The CE will input code CS into ECMS, to represent a request for evidence from a corporate verifier.

 

Once the CE has received a response from the corporate verifier, code CR should be entered into ECMS. Any response should then be reviewed to determine if it is sufficient to verify the claimed period of employment. If the corporate verifier affirms the entire period of employment being claimed, the CE is to accept the period as factual. If the corporate verifier is unable to substantiate the claimed period of employment or can substantiate a portion of it, the CE is to request additional information from the claimant. In particular, the CE will need to advise the claimant that the DOL has been unable to verify employment for certain dates through independent means. Moreover, the claimant is to submit any contemporaneous documentation substantiating employment for any unverified period of employment. Code DE should be input in any instance where the CE is sending an inquiry to the claimant requesting employment evidence. Upon receipt of additional evidence, the CE will review it to determine whether it is sufficient to make a finding accepting the claimed period of employment as factual.

 

9. For any employer named that appears on List 3: DOE Verifiers, the CE will need to prepare an employment package for referral to the DOE Workers' Advocacy Office in Germantown, Maryland. The DOs should follow the same routine that has been in place for case referrals to the Germantown office. The referral package will contain an EE-5 form with the top portion completed by the CE, a copy of the primary claim form and a copy of the EE-3 Employment History form. The package will then be sent to the Germantown Office for the EE-5 to be completed. ECMS will be updated with the ES status code. When DOE completes the EE-5 and returns it to the DO, the CE should update ECMS with the ER status code. If DOE verifies the period of claimed employment, the CE should accept the employment period as factual. Otherwise, the CE should prepare a request for the claimant to submit any contemporaneous documentation substantiating the period of claimed employment. ECMS should be updated with the DE status code in this instance. If the claimant is unable to provide reliable evidence sufficient to establish the claimed period of employment, the CE is to issue a finding that employment at the named facility has not been substantiated.

 

10. Any other employment claimed by the employee should continue to be verified through the appropriate operations center listed on the EEOICPA Claims Routing Guidance list.

 

Disposition: Retain until incorporated in the Federal (EEOICPA) Procedure Manual.
