If you have a legal right to work in the United States, there are laws to protect you against discrimination in the workplace. You should know that: No employer can deny you a job or fire you because of your national origin.
Unless mandated by law or government contract, employers cannot require you to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident or refuse any legally acceptable documents.
If any of these things have happened to you, you may have a valid charge of discrimination that can be filed with OSC. Contact the OSC for assistance in your own language. Call 1-800-255-7688 TDD. For the hearing impaired 1-800-237-2515. In the Washington, D.C. area, please call 202-616-5594, TDD 202-616-5525. Or write to: U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Special Counsel – NYA, 950 Pennsylvania Ave., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20530
