Some Employers Refuse to Hire the DACAmented; Lawsuits Ensue

Miriam Jordon, New York Times, Aug. 20, 2020

"It is impossible to know how many people have been denied jobs based on their DACA status, said Thomas A. Saenz, president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, which has filed several lawsuits against companies that refused to hire DACA recipients.  Bank of America and Northwestern Mutual are among those that have settled such employment cases. M&T Bank and Procter & Gamble are defendants in current lawsuits.  “If major companies are engaging in this practice, countless smaller companies are doing the same thing,” Mr. Saenz said."
