Comment: DACA Impact On Employers - Several immigration practitioners speculated on the practical effects of Deferred Action grants on employers in an article that Business Week ran online yesterday. One indicated he expects those who are granted Deferred Action will most commonly find work with small businesses, in both skilled and unskilled positions. Another key issue is how employers will react when confronted with what will likely be a common scenario - when current employees show up with a new, valid EAD after having originally given fraudulent information of one type or another. In these cases, employers should quickly file the new, legitimate paperwork through the proper channels. In addition, they should write a memo to the person's HR file that traces the history of the person's information and why the company originally suspected the information they received was good. Of course, companies may also choose to terminate those who originally filed fraudulent documents upon discovering it - this would be an appropriate ground for termination, though companies must be cognizant of the risks involved. In sum, while Deferred Action is very clearly a boon for both those receiving the grants and for employers who are looking for younger, educated (and presumably relatively cost-effective) employees, the program does not represent a pure benefit - it raises complex questions and issues for those on all sides of the equation, and everyone must prepare effectively to handle the inevitable issues that will arise.
