The U.S. Justice Department has reached an agreement with Macy’s Inc. that resolves allegations the company violated the antidiscrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act.
According to the settlement agreement, Macy’s agreed to revise its employment eligibility reverification policies and procedures, and to provide training to its human resources personnel across the country on the INA’s antidiscrimination provision. Macy’s, which employs about 180,000 people in the U.S., also agreed to pay $175,000 in civil penalties to the U.S., and to create a $100,000 back-pay fund to compensate any individuals who suffered lost wages or loss of seniority as a result of its practices. Under the agreement, Macy’s employment eligibility verification practices will be subject to monitoring by the department and reporting requirements for a period of two years.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
