Several organizations have been recently fined due to violations of the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act during the Form I-9 and E-Verify process.
Under this law, employers may not discriminate when they treat workers differently in the hiring and firing processes because a worker is or is not a U.S. citizen, because of a worker’s particular immigration status, or because of where a worker is from or appears to be from. Employers also may not treat workers differently for these reasons in the Form I-9 and E-Verify processes. This law protects workers from retaliation by employers as well.
