[Ed. – World officially turned upside down. Remember, proving immigration status is what businesses are supposed to be doing to discourage illegal immigration. Your federal government is now just flipping you the biggest bird it can. Emphasis added.]
The Department of Justice has accused a business of discrimination due to the company requiring employees to show proof of citizenship for employment.
The DOJ claims that Nebraska Beef Ltd., a Nebraska-based meat packing company, “required non-U.S. citizens, but not similarly-situated U.S. citizens, to present specific documentary proof of their immigration status to verify their employment eligibility.”
After receiving pressure from the government, Nebraska Beef agreed to pay $200,000 in a civil penalty settlement and said they will establish an uncapped back pay fund for people who lost wages because they could not prove they are in the country legally.
The settlement also requires the business to undergo compliance monitoring for two years, train employees on the anti-discrimination provision within the Immigration and Nationality Act, and to revise policies within its office.
