OSC Releases Info on Enforcement, Policy, Trends; Launches Webinar

Seyfarth Shaw (12/28/11) Paparelli, Angelo; Mozes, Gabriel; Quill, John

Nov. 6, 2011, marked the 25th anniversary of the passage of the Immigration Reform and Control Act, which created the Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices. To mark the occasion, OSC issued a commemorative newsletter featuring OSC’s enforcement, policy, and outreach trends and antidiscrimination efforts.

OSC says its enforcement work has been bolstered by a rise in referrals of potential discrimination from entities such as the U.S. Department of Labor, legal aid bureaus, and immigrant advocacy organizations. Recently, OSC has renewed its dialogue with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and with DOL’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs to ensure that appropriate referrals are made in a timely fashion. It has also initiated discussions with DOL’s Wage and Hour Division to identify appropriate cross-agency referrals.
