Job Discrimination

DON’T LET ANYONE TAKE AWAY YOUR RIGHT TO WORK

If you weren’t hired because:seven farmworkers

  • you are not a U.S. citizen
  • you don’t have a permanent resident card
  • you were not born in the U.S.
  • the company thought your work documents looked fake
  • you don’t speak English, and it’s not necessary to do the job, or
  • you were fired so that you could be replaced by a U.S. citizen….

....THEN YOU MAY HAVE BEEN DISCRIMINATED AGAINST

Also, when you get a job, you must show documents that prove your authorization to work in the US and sign a form called an I-9. The I-9 lists the documents you can use to prove work authorization. The employer cannot tell you which of the documents listed that you must provide.

If you are discriminated against, call one of our offices. Also, please look at the "Fair Employment Practices" article on the next to last page for more information about discrimination at work.
