I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

FTD Receives late Valentine Day gift, not; by Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser, P.C.

Rating: 2 votes, 5.00 average.
The Department of Justice, through the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC), reached an agreement with FTD Inc., to resolve allegations that the company retaliated against a man for asserting rights under the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).  

OSC initiated the investigation after receiving a complaint from a work-authorized immigrant that FTD rescinded the individual's conditional job offer after a background check revealed a purported error in his Social Security account number.   The man informed FTD that he was authorized to work in the United States and provided documents showing his status.   The man also threatened to pursue his legal rights under the INA's anti-discrimination provision.   FTD responded by terminating all communication with the individual.    


Under the terms of the settlement agreement, FTD agreed to pay $1,800 in back pay to the individual and $3,000 in civil penalties.   FTD also agreed to undergo Justice Department training on the anti-discrimination provision of the INA.  


This is the fourth settlement that OSC has reached with employers in the first two months of 2013. So beware of potential legal diffiulties with the OSC.
