USCIS and DOJ’s Office of Special Counsel (OSC) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOU) on March 17 governing information and case referrals with the civil rights office relating to immigrationrelated unfair employment practices. The MOU mandates that USCIS Verification Division will refer to OSC all discrimination matters within OSC and EEOC’s jurisdiction. In particular, all matters will be referred that may involve an individual act or pattern or practice of employment discrimination on the basis of national origin or citizenship status; document abuse; or retaliation as well as any matters that may involve the misuse, abuse, or fraudulent use of E-Verify that can result in the adverse treatment of employees.
