Provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which prohibit employers from discriminating against work-authorized persons based on citizenship status or national origin.
The UFW Foundation's Anti-Discrimination Project aims to educate workers about the anti-discrimination provisions of the Immigration and Nationality Act, which prohibit employers from discriminating against work-authorized persons based on citizenship status or national origin. US Citizens and Nationals, Permanent Residents, Asylees, and Refugees are protected from discrimination in hiring, firing, and recruitment or referral for a fee. Furthermore, employers are forbidden to require more or different documents to verify employment eligibility than what is specified on the I-9 Form. Employers are also forbidden from retaliating against an employee for filing a claim with the US Department of Justice, Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC), cooperating in an OSC investigation, or contesting action that could constitute immigration-related unfair employment practices.

More information about these types of discrimination (in English, Spanish, and Chinese) and many educational resources including posters and videos can be found on the OSC's website at: http://www.justice.gov/crt/osc/.

If you think you or someone you know may have been subjected to this kind of discrimination, please call one of the UFW Foundation's offices, or use our toll-free number: (877)881-8281. We can help you contact the OSC and file a charge if your case meets the requirements. You may also call the OSC directly, toll free: 1-800-255-7688 (worker hotline); or 1-800-255-8155 (employer hotline). The OSC staff speak many different languages.
