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.
