I-9 E-Verify Immigration Compliance

Document Abuse Costly to Forever 21 and SOS Employment Group; Bruce Buchanan, Siskind

Rating: 14 votes, 5.00 average.
Two employers, Forever 21 and SOS Employment Group, have been fined by the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) for document abuse - where an employer requires an individual to present certain documents during the I-9 process. Forever 21 refused to accept an Employment Authorization Document (EAD) and told the employee to present a permanent resident card when completing the I-9 form. Thereafter, Forever 21, forbid the individual, who was employment-authorized as an applicant for permanent residence, to work. SOS Employment Group mistakenly rejected an unrestricted Social Security card and valid driver’s license of an individual with refugee status. Pursuant to the settlement agreements, Forever 21 and SOS Employment Group agreed to pay $1,705.50 and $9,157.50 in back pay to the respective charging parties and $280 and $1200, respectively, in civil penalties to the U.S., and receive training on the anti-discrimination provision. Too often employers want to dictate what documents a new hire can provide in the I-9 process. As these settlements reflect, such mistakes are costly. These situations can be avoided if employers are properly trained by immigration compliance attorneys.
