I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

OSC Settles Immigration Claim against North Carolina Company; by Bruce Buchanan, Siskind Susser

Rate this Entry

The Office of Special Counsel, an arm of the Justice Department, has reached an agreement with Gamewell Mechanical Inc., based in Salisbury, N.C., resolving claims that the company violated the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA).  


An investigation revealed that Gamewell officials had terminated three individuals when it received information that six of their co-workers were undocumented foreign nationals and incorrectly assumed that three U.S. citizens were similarly not authorized to work in the United States.  


Under the settlement agreement, Gamewell Mechanical will pay a total of $10,560 in back pay to the three discharged U.S. citizens, and $9,600 in civil penalties to the United States.  Gamewell Mechanical will also train its human resources staff about employers' responsibilities to avoid discrimination in the employment eligibility verification process and be subject to reporting and
compliance monitoring by the department for 18 months.
