Several Macy's stores' affiliates in Florida and Puerto Rico settled with the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, Office of Special Counsel ("Office of Special Counsel") after a finding that Macy's had committed unfair documentary practices in the re-verification of employees for purposes of Form I-9, Employer Eligibility Verification. Macy's was assessed $175,000 in civil fines and $100,000 in damages. Additionally, the Office of Special Counsel instituted a three year period during which Macy's would have to find and reach out to all affected individuals and offer to re-verify them. Macy's also agreed to provide employees with training, to not discriminate in the future and to modify its electronic Employment Eligibility Verification process to allow employees to complete Section 1 of the Form I-9. Furthermore, during the reported period, the Office of Special Counsel will continue to provide oversight to Macy's and every six months will check Section 3 of the Form I-9 to ensure proper completion.
