Employer sued by DOJ for I-9 document abuse

The DOJ sued a Georgia employer because the employer demanded different work eligibility documents from its non-U.S. than from its U.S. citizen employees. The Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) prohibits employers from placing different or additional burden on work-authorized employees based on their citizenship or national origin. An investigation into this employer showed a pattern of discriminatory conduct during the hiring and I-9 process. For additional info see: DOJ
