I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

Office of Special Counsel Settles Anti-Discrimination Claim; by Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser

Rate this Entry

The Justice Department, through the Office of Special Counsel (OSC), reached an agreement with ISS Facility Services Company of San Antonio, Texas resolving allegations that the company violated the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).  ISS employs approximately 15,000 employees in the United States.


 
The investigation was initiated based on a referral from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).  The investigation focused on whether the ISS offices in Dallas and Houston were requiring non-citizens to present specific U.S. Department of Homeland Security-issued documents to establish their identity and work-authority while not making similar requests of U.S. citizens.  This is a violation of the INA's anti-discrimination provision.


 According to the settlement agreement, ISS will ensure that all its offices comply with the company's existing employment eligibility verification policies and procedures and provide training of its human resources personnel on the INA's anti-discrimination provision.  ISS also agreed to pay $49,800 to the United States and to identify and compensate any individuals who may have suffered economic injuries as a result of its practices.  Under the agreement, ISS' employment eligibility verification practices will be subject to monitoring by the OSC for a period of two years.


After a couple of months of inaction, the OSC is back to settling discrimination claims and the settlement dollars keep getting larger.
