Justice Department Settles Discrimination Case

UPS will pay penalty and update employee training protocol.

The Department of Justice announced a week ago that the United Parcel Service Inc. (UPS) settled a civil action brought against them. The Justice Department had launched a probe into the company, and found that UPS had unlawfully asked a newly hired worker to provide additional documentation on top of his driver’s license and Social Security card.

“The settlement resolves the department’s claims that UPS violated the Immigration and Nationality Act when it discriminated against a non-U.S. citizen by requesting that he present additional documents to prove his permission to work after the worker had already provided sufficient proof,” the Justice Department stated. As part of the settlement, UPS will pay a penalty and be subject to department monitoring.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Attorney General Garland to seek God’s leading as he heads the Justice Department.
  • For the U.S. officials in the Offices of Civil Rights working to ensure people are not discriminated against.
