The U.S. Department of Justice has filed a lawsuit against Whiz International LLC, an information technology staffing company in Jersey City, NJ, regarding allegations that the company violated the antidiscrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act when it terminated an employee in retaliation for expressing opposition to Whiz’s alleged preference for foreign nationals with temporary work visas. The complaint alleges that the company directed an employee who served as a receptionist and a recruiter to prefer certain noncitizens in its recruitment efforts and then terminated the employee when she expressed discomfort with excluding U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents from consideration.
