Discrimination

The Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices (“OSC”) investigates the following types of discriminatory conduct:

1. Employers may not treat individuals differently because they are, or are not, U.S. citizens or work authorized individuals.

2. Employers may not treat individuals differently because of their place of birth, country of origin, ancestry, native language, accent, or because they are perceived as looking or sounding “foreign.”

3. Employers may not request more or different documents than are required to verify employment eligibility, reject reasonably genuine-looking documents, or specify certain documents over others with the purpose or intent of discriminating on the basis of citizenship status or national origin.

4. Individuals who file charges with OSC, who cooperate with an OSC investigation, who contest action that may constitute unfair documentary practices or discrimination based upon citizenship or immigration status, or national origin, or who assert their rights under the INA’s anti-discrimination provision are protected from intimidation, threats, coercion, and retaliation.
