The Department of Justice reached an agreement with the University of California San Diego Medical Center to resolve a complaint which alleged that the medical center demanded newly hired non-citizens to submit additional documents to verify their employment eligibility but did not require the same of U.S. citizens. As part of the settlement, the medical center agreed to implement new employment eligibility verification policies and procedures; to pay a civil penalty of $115,000; conduct supplemental training of its human resources personnel; and work with the DOJ to ensure compliance with proper employment eligibility verification processes across all University of California locations. The DOJ’s announcement is available here.
