On January 29, 2004, Immigration Daily published an article by Josie Gonzalez entitled "I-9 Anomalies That Challenge Employers: TPS, Refugees & Asylees, H-1B Transferees and Subcontractor Obligations." In her article, Ms. Gonzalez noted that the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices is "a branch of the new Office of Homeland Security." Please be aware that the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices is not, in fact, part of the Department of Homeland Security. Rather, it is a component within the Civil Rights Division at the US Department of Justice, and protects US citizens and legal immigrants from employment discrimination based upon national origin or citizenship status, retaliation, and unfair documentary practices related to the employment eligibility verification process.
