The government’s immigration enforcement efforts remain on the rise. The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice (DOJ) has recently reached a settlement with a North Carolina landscaping company. DOJ’s investigation found that Triple H Services LLC (“Triple H”) engaged in discrimination against U.S. workers qualified, available, and willing to accept positions with the company in favor of foreign temporary workers in H-2B status. DOJ determined that while Triple H conducted advertisement for the vacancies at their business in several U.S. states, it misled U.S. workers about the available jobs and discouraged their applications. Investigators concluded that Triple H had effectively denied U.S. workers access to positions with the company by giving preference to H-2B workers and denying hire to available U.S. workers. Under the terms of the settlement, Triple H must establish a back pay fund to compensate workers harmed by its discriminatory hiring practices, pay $15,000 in civil penalties to the government, increase its recruitment activities to attract U.S. workers, train its HR personnel on the company’s anti discriminatory obligations and revise the company’s stated employment policies to prohibit hiring and recruitment discrimination based on citizenship, immigration status, and national origin, and to subject the company to departmental monitoring and reporting for a 3-year period.
