Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA)
The provisions of the IRCAapply to
actions by employers regarding hiring, terminating, and recruiting or
referring employees for a fee. Under IRCA, it is unlawful for
employers of four or more employees to:
Discriminate based on citizenship status against
U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and the following classes of aliens
with work authorization: permanent residents, temporary residents
who have processed through the legalization program, refugees, and
those granted asylum.
Discriminate based on national origin against
U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and authorized aliens.
Employers must verify the identity and employment
eligibility of hiring candidates, including potentially new IT
employees, by completing the Employment Eligibility Verification Form(I-9). All I-9 forms must be kept on file by the employer
for at least three years, or for one year after employment ends,
whichever is longer.
