Staffing Company to Pay $175,000 Over Discrimination Claims

San Diego staffing company Eastridge Workforce Solutions recently resolved allegations with the Department of Justice after new hires faced discriminatory practices while completing work authorization verification requirements, such as E-verify cases and filling out the Form I-9, creating a breach of Immigration and Nationality Act provisions that protect new hires who are not U.S. citizens. The Mira Mesa, Calif., location was required to pay $175,000 in civil penalties. It is important for companies to have compliant hiring procedures in place that are consistent with each new hire.
