The Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices published best practices for employers and recruiters who post job ads on the internet. You can find the guidance on their website at: http://www.justice.gov/crt/osc/htm/best_practices.php.
The Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, created in 1957 by the enactment of the Civil Rights Act of 1957, works to uphold the civil and constitutional rights of all individuals, particularly some of the most vulnerable members of our society. The Division enforces federal statutes prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, disability, religion, familial status and national origin.
The Civil Rights Division’s work addresses discrimination in education, employment, credit, housing, public accommodations, voting, state and local government programs, and certain federally funded and conducted programs. In addition, the Division prosecutes hate crimes, misconduct by public officials, human trafficking crimes, and criminal interference with those obtaining reproductive health services. The Division also coordinates enforcement efforts of federal agencies whose programs are covered by various civil rights laws, and it assists federal agencies in identifying and removing discriminatory provisions in their policies and programs.
