- Excerpt from Immigration. DOJ settles immigration- related discrimination claim:

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), through its Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC), recently settled a claim alleging discrimination, based on unfair documentary practices during the employment verifi cation process, against employment-authorized non-U.S. workers by their employer. The anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act prohibits employers from requesting more or different documents than are required to verify employment eligibility, rejecting reasonably genuine-looking documents, or specifying certain documents over others with the purpose of discriminating on the basis of citizenship status or national origin.
