I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

OSC Settles Immigration-Related Discrimination Claim Against Property Management Company; by Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser

Rate this Entry

The Office of Special for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC), a part of the Department of Justice reached an agreement with Milestone Management Company, a residential property management firm headquartered in Dallas, resolving claims that the staffing company violated the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).


A lawful permanent resident alleged that after working for Milestone for three years, the company improperly demanded he produce an unexpired lawful permanent resident card, despite the fact that  he had presented proper work authorization documentation at the time of hire.   The company discharged the worker when he was unable to present the document.   The investigation revealed that Milestone had also improperly reverified the documentation of other lawful permanent residents when their documentation expired and it did not reverify expired documentation of U.S. citizens. The anti-discrimination provision generally prohibits treating employees differently in the employment eligibility verification and reverification processes based on citizenship or national origin unless required by law.


In resolution of the matter, Milestone immediately reinstated the charging party and provided full backpay for his six weeks of lost wages.  Under the terms of the agreement, Milestone agreed to pay $20,000 in civil penalties to the United States, undergo Justice Department training on the anti-discrimination provision of the INA and be subject to monitoring of its employment eligibility verification practices for a period of three years.    The case settled prior to the Department of Justice  filing a complaint in this matter.
