DOJ Office of Special Counsel to Address St. Louis Immigration bar

A representative from the U.S. Department of Justice Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) will conduct a presentation on the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration & Nationality Act, which protects work authorized individuals against employment discrimination on the basis of citizenship status or national origin, including discrimination in the hiring and the employment eligibility verification process (e.g. Form I-9, E-Verify).

The anti-discrimination provision, codified at 8 U.S.C. 1324b, was created together with the employer sanctions provision, 8 U.S.C. 1324a, and the relationship between these two provisions will be discussed.  Related issues, such as Social Security no-matches, will also be addressed.  A Q&A session will follow the presentation.

The discussion will be held at Stinson Morrison Hecker at noon on Wednesday, April 25, 2012.
