The Department of Justice has such important things to do. Just read where the DOJ is having a Texas catering business [Culinaire International] pay $26,400 as part of a settlement for engaging in "citizenship-discrimination".
WTH! [for me this means "what the heck!"]
Well it seems that DOJ states that an employer cannot discriminate against workers by requiring them to produce more documents than necessary in the employment eligibility verification and re-verification process". If the "resident's" permanent resident card expired Culinaire was requiring the "resident" to present a renewed permanent resident card before they were allowed to return to work.
Of course the DOJ claimed that this violates a provision in the INA that prohibits employers from requiring extra documentation from non-citizen employees......
Ok.....if you employ an undocumented non-citizen then you are breaking the law....but if you ask for documentation you are breaking the law....Is this a catch-22?
