Justice Dept settles with Centerplate
Monday - 1/7/2013, 5:48pm EST
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Justice Department and one of the largest hospitality companies in the world have settled allegations that the firm discriminated in employment by requiring non-U.S. citizens to produce specific documents issued by the Department of Homeland Security.
The government says Centerplate Inc. of Spartanburg, S.C., did not make similar requests of U.S. citizens and that the different treatment went on for at least three years.
Centerplate provides food service to more than 250 stadiums, convention centers and entertainment venues around the nation and has over 10,000 employees.
Centerplate will pay $250,000 in civil penalties, the third-highest amount paid since the Immigration and Nationality Act's anti-discrimination provision became law in 1986. Centerplate will undergo Justice Department training and will fully compensate victims who lost wages as a result of Centerplate's practices.
