Justice Dept, Macy's settle employment allegations
Thursday - 6/27/2013, 1:41pm EDT
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Justice Department and Macy's have resolved allegations that the retailer imposed discriminatory document requirements on immigrant employees to verify that they were eligible to work.
The anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act law bars employers from demanding more or different identification documents from employees based on workers' immigration status and prohibits employers from limiting those workers' choice of documents.
Macy's has agreed to revise its procedures, will provide training to its human resources personnel, will pay the government $175,000 in civil penalties and create a $100,000 back pay fund to compensate employees. In addition, the Justice Department will monitor Macy's practices for two years.
Macy's employs 180,000 workers in the U.S.
