I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

Office of Special Counsel Settles with Georgia Company over Immigration-related Unfair Employment Practices; by Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser

Rate this Entry

The Office of Special
Counsel for Immigration-related Unfair Employment Practices, within the Department
of Justice, has reached an agreement with Poulan Pecan, located in Poulan,
Georgia, resolving allegations that the company violated the
anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).


An investigation of Poulan
Pecan was initiated in 2012, based on a claim by an individual who called a
department hotline and complained that the pecan-producing company requested
specific documentation from her to establish her work authorization. The investigation
concluded Poulan Pecan discriminated against work-authorized non-U.S. citizens
by requiring specific and more documents than necessary from them when
completing the Form I-9, while not imposing similar requirements of U.S.
citizens.


Under the terms of the
agreement, Poulan Pecan will pay $500 in civil penalties and be subject to
monitoring of its employment eligibility verification practices for a period of
one year. 


This is just another example of what occurs when a company requires more documentation for non U.S. citizens than U.S. citizens.
