On January 7, 2013, the OSC announced that it had settled charges that food service vendor Centerplate Inc. had discriminated against non-U.S. citizens during the employment eligibility verification process for the past three years. Centerplate has more than 10,000 employees nationwide and provides food services to more than 250 sports stadiums, convention centers, and entertainment facilities in this country. The OSC alleged that Centerplate engaged in a pattern and practice of discrimination by requiring employees who were not American citizens to provide specific documents that American citizens were not required to produce. To settle the allegations, Centerplate agreed to pay a civil penalty of $250,000—the third highest civil penalty that the OSC has secured through settlement.
