Employment of Aliens (8 U.S.C. s. 1324a) (8 CFR s. 274a.12)
- It is illegal to knowingly hire or recruit aliens who have not been lawfully admitted in the U.S. or who are not authorized to work in the U.S.
- An employer must swear that it has verified that each individual being hired is not an unauthorized alien.
- An employer must also have applicants sign a special form swearing that they are either citizens or nationals of the United States, lawful permanent residents or aliens authorized to work. This is called an I-9 form. (I-9 Form)
- Employers cannot discriminate against any individual (other than an unauthorized alien) with respect to the hiring or recruitment or referral for a fee because of such individual's national origin or because of such individual's citizenship status. (8 U.S.C. s. 1324b)
