The Division’s Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) is responsible for enforcing the anti-discrimination provision of the INA. The statute prohibits, among other things, citizenship status and national origin discrimination in hiring, firing, or recruitment or referral for a fee; unfair documentary practices; retaliation and intimidation.
More information on how employers can avoid unlawful citizenship status discrimination is available here. IER will also be offering a free webinar on March 3, 2020 at 3:30 p.m. Eastern time, on how employers can avoid unlawful discrimination under the INA’s anti-discrimination provision.
