Protecting All Workers: New Video Resources

June 20th, 2012: "Today, the Justice Department announced the launch of two short educational videos, created by the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC).   The office enforces the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), which requires employers to treat all authorized workers fairly in regards to hiring, firing and recruitment or referral for a fee, as well as in the employment eligibility verification process, regardless of their citizenship status or national origin.   The first video, “Refugee Reverification,” highlights a common problem faced by refugees and asylees. When Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) expire, the Employment Eligibility Verification Form I-9 allows workers to provide any acceptable document to establish their authorization to work – not limited to a new EAD. However, some employers may demand a new EAD or additional documents from these workers and may violate the anti-discrimination provision of the INA.  The second video encourages employers, employees and advocates to attend a free webinar and learn how to avoid and prevent unfair employment practices related to immigration."
