WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Justice said Wednesday it has settled a discrimination claim against Forever 21 Inc., which has agreed to pay $1,750.50 in back pay to a newly hired employee, as well as a $280 civil fine.
The retailer is settling allegations that it violated the antidiscrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act when it rejected an employee’s Employment Authorization Document, which is issued by the Department of Homeland Security, and instead required her to provide a “green card,” or permanent residence card, as part of its employment verification process.
A Justice Department spokeswoman said the woman had accepted an offer from Forever 21 and had reported for work. She was later unable to work after the retailer refused her work-authorized document.
Etro’s show, titled “The Tree of Life,” was a celebration of the house’s 50th anniversary. “My father founded the company in 1968, which was the year of counterculture and psychedelia. It’s really a show that celebrates that and the paisley design of India and its origin,” said Veronica Etro. #wwdfashion #mfw #ss18 (📷: @delphineachard)
