NEW JERSEY- A US based IT recruitment company has been slapped with a fine for its discriminatory advertising which invited job applicants only from India. Between July 2021 and August 2021, Infosoft Solutions Inc, the IT recruiting and contracting company posted at least six job advertisements inviting applications only from applicants who wanted sponsorship to work in the United States or who already had an employment-based temporary visa. One of the six advertisements also required the candidates to be from India
According to the Justice Department, The Immigration and Nationality Act’s anti-discrimination provision generally prohibits employers from recruiting or refusing to hire workers based on their citizenship status or national origin. With such an advertisement the company deterred workers with permission to work in the United States without sponsorship (such as asylum seekers, lawful permanent residents, US nationals and citizens) from applying to the job advertisements and being fairly considered for the employment opportunities.
Infosoft will pay USD 25,500 in civil penalties to the United States.
