Background

    We are implementing a nationwide program to enhance the safety and 
security of our employees who are victims, or potential victims, of 
domestic violence. In order to safeguard their anonymity we will not 
disclose their work location and/or phone number to individuals who 
pose a threat to their personal safety. This final rule will strengthen 
our privacy and disclosure rules to better safeguard at-risk employees 
by amending 20 CFR Part 401, Appendix A (c)(4) to remove the sentence, 
``Location of duty station, including room number and telephone 
number.'' We are also revising 20 CFR 402.45 to add a new paragraph (e) 
describing the rules governing the release of personally identifiable 
information. The changes in our rule will allow us to implement the 
Identity Protection Program (IPP). The IPP enhances the safety and 
security of our employees who reasonably believe that they are at risk 
of injury or other harm if certain employment information about them is 
disclosed. As it is a national program, the IPP ensures uniform 
application of the policy for at-risk employees.

required.
