Dallas-based catering service Culinaire International has reached a settlement with the United States Department of Justice and agreed to pay $26,460 for allegedly discriminating against employees based on citizenship status, an article on Justice News Flash reported on September 3.
According to a report by The Daily Caller, Culinaire International allegedly mandated employees to produce additional, unnecessary proof of their eligibility to work in the United States.
Culinaire is also set to form a compensation fund to pay those who may have been economic victims of its actions, change its work eligibility verification process, and mandate its management to attend training and seminars on Immigration and Nationality Act anti-discrimination laws.
Any form of discrimination, when it directly interferes with the prospects of an employee to grow in his workplace, is unlawful.
