Citizenship Status Discrimination Statement
Under 8 U.S.C. §§ 1324b(a)(1)(B) and (a)(2)(C), employers are not allowed to limit job applicants or hires to U.S. citizens unless they are required to do so by federal, state, or local laws or federal contracts that require specific positions to be filled only by U.S. citizens. If a job applicant is discouraged or rejected from employment based on citizenship status, the employer may be committing citizenship status discrimination in violation of the anti-discrimination provision of the INA. You can get more information on citizenship status discrimination at 8 U.S.C. § 1324b(a)(1)(B) and by contacting IER. If you believe that your application may have been improperly rejected because you are not a U.S. citizen, contact IER.
