Immigrant discrimination occurs whenever an employer utilises unfair employment practices in regard to immigrants. To clarify, employers have every right to reject a potential employee if he or she is an illegal immigrant or does not have the right to work in the United States; however, if an immigrant does have the right to work in the United States, it is illegal to discriminate against that individual on the basis of national origin or immigration status.
Immigration discrimination takes a variety of guises, but all of them are prohibited in the Unites States. For example, workplace harassment against employees from other nations constitutes an illegal activity.
Citizenship status discrimination takes place when an employer refuses to hire a give person because that person is an immigrant. Reverse discrimination can occur as well in which people who are immigrants are given preferential access to jobs on the assumption that they will be willing to work for lower wages.
Another form of immigrant discrimination occurs when employers ask for more documents than are reasonable need or if employers illegally hold immigration documents such as passports of green cards in their possession while the employee works for those employers.
