Panel SA: US Department of Justice fines GAP for discrimination against foreigners


The US Department of Justice reached a deal with retail chain Gap to end lawsuits investigating discriminatory practices against immigrants who worked for the company, including foreigners who were legally living in the US.

As part of the deal, the Gap will have to pay fines and back wages to former employees harmed by its policies, as well as invest in training programs and submit to government monitoring.

US immigration law prohibits employers from unnecessarily reviewing an employee’s permission to work or specifying the types of documents a worker is allowed to show to prove permission due to citizenship, immigration status, or nationality.
