As a general rule, employers may find it advisable to adopt a policy which allows for the hiring of non-citizens and establish procedures that insure that they do not violate the discrimination provisions of Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 and the federal civil rights laws. This partial list of suggestions should aid employers seeking to avoid charges of unlawful discrimination against individuals based on their nationality or citizenship. However, it’s always advisable for employers to seek advice from their own legal counsel to insure that they are in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Do not: � pay non-citizens a lower salary because of citizenship status. � hire only those who have easily verifiable documentation such as a social security card or driver’s license. � refuse documents such as citizenship ID cards or visas. � request more documentation than necessary. � refuse to hire individuals with accents. � establish an English-only rule unless you have a legitimate business reason for doing so. � ask only some job applicants for employment eligibility (e.g., based on physical appearance)
