Discriminatory Employment Eligibility Verification Process

The Justice Department reached a settlement with BAE Systems Ship Repair Inc. to settle allegations that its subsidiary, BAE Systems Southeast Shipyards Alabama LLC, engaged in a pattern or practice of discrimination by imposing unnecessary and additional documentary requirements on non-U.S. citizens when establishing their eligibility to work in the United States. The government alleged that since at least January 1, 2009, BAE Southeast Alabama imposed different and greater requirements in the Form I-9 employment eligibility verification process on lawful permanent residents as compared to U.S. citizen employees. BAE agreed to pay $53,900.
