Covenant Transport of Tennessee and an affiliate will pay the U.S. government $700,000 for discriminating “against non-U.S. citizen workers when checking their permission to work in the United States.”=

Yep, they checked the green cards of employment applicants and that’s just wrong according to the Biden Justice Department.

According to a Dept. of Justice press release:

 

The department’s investigation found that from January 2020 through at least August 2022, Covenant and Transport routinely discriminated against non-U.S. citizens by requiring lawful permanent residents to show their Permanent Resident Cards (known as green cards) and by requiring other non-U.S. citizens to show documents related to their immigration status.

Federal law allows all workers to choose which valid, legally acceptable documentation to present to demonstrate their identity and permission to work, regardless of citizenship status, immigration status or national origin. The INA’s anti-discrimination provision prohibits employers from requiring specific or unnecessary documents because of a worker’s citizenship status, immigration status or national origin.

The Justice Department announced it has secured a $700,000 settlement agreement with Covenant Transport Inc., as well as the affiliated entity Transport Management Services LLC.

Imagine a company asking applicants who are “non-U.S. citizens to show documents related to their immigration status” before hiring them. The Biden administration just has to stop that kind of activity.

The agreement resolves the department’s determination that the company violated the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) by routinely discriminating against non-U.S. citizen workers when checking their permission to work in the United States.
