The Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER), formerly known as the OSC, has reached an agreement with Sellariís Enterprises, Inc., a staffing company in Orlando, Florida. The settlement agreement resolves an investigation into whether Sellariís violated the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) by discriminating against work-authorized immigrants. The IER concluded Sellariís requested that non-U.S. citizens present specific documents to prove their work authorization, such as a Permanent Resident Cards or Employment Authorization Documents, while not requesting specific documents from U.S. citizens. All work-authorized individuals, whether citizens or non-citizens, have the right to choose which valid documentation to present to prove they are authorized to work. The anti-discrimination provision of the INA prohibits employers from subjecting employees to different or unnecessary documentary demands based on employeesí citizenship, immigration status or national origin.

Under the settlement, Sellariís will pay a civil penalty of $120,000 to the United States, post notices informing workers about their rights under the INAís antidiscrimination provision, undergo IER-provided training to HR employees on proper I-9 and E-Verify practices, revise employment policies and practices to be in compliance with the law, and comply with departmental monitoring and reporting requirements for three years.
