A long time ago, I would have NEVER said that.
But so many American citizens can’t get hired in America while foreign born citizens do get hired.
So when an American company tries to do the right thing and finds itself in hot water with the department of justice, I have to blame the department of justice for not protecting American citizens like they are doing for non-American guest workers.
The lawsuit alleges that from at least April 4, 2017, to at least July 7, 2017, TransPerfect Staffing limited its recruitment and hiring of attorneys for a temporary document review project to U.S. citizens only. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges that from at least May 12, 2017, to July 7, 2017, TransPerfect Staffing further restricted its recruitment and hiring for positions under the project to exclude U.S. citizens who were also citizens of another country. Although it implemented these discriminatory policies at the request of a client, TransPerfect Staffing actively participated in the discriminatory hiring process and remained the employer of the document reviewers assigned to the project, according to the lawsuit.
Meanwhile, the evidence is overwhelming that Americans are being discriminated against by companies other than this company.
