Aquatico: Feds Make An Example Of Sugar Land Company For NOT Hiring An Immigrant
|Hire those immigrants, dammit!|
Not so with Sugar Land's Aquatico Pool Managment: The DOJ announced today they had reached a settlement with the company over complaints Aquatico did not hire an immigrant.
|Training. Sounds fun!|
And for that they shall pay!! Aquatico, that is.
The company agreed to pay almost $1,600 in civil penalties and back pay to Anthony Ernest Gobran, a Sudanese immigrant, and to have its human-resources people undergo training on just which immigrants are good to hire.
"The [Immigration and Naturalization Act]'s anti-discrimination provision means that all individuals authorized to work in the United States have the right to seek employment without the added burden of special rules or document demands based on their citizenship status or national origin, " Thomas E. Perez, assistant attorney general for Civil Rights, said in the announcement. "This settlement represents our ongoing commitment to work with all employers, large or small, to ensure compliance with the anti-discrimination requirements of federal immigration law."
