Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2008, $40,000)

The U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) funds grants for the purpose of conducting public education programs about: (1) the rights afforded potential victims of employment discrimination; and, (2) the responsibilities of employers under the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. §1324b. Funded projects design and implement public education campaigns to address immigration related unfair employment discrimination by educating workers, employers, and the general public about the anti-discrimination provision of the INA.

For over a decade, Nachman & Associates, P.C. (N&A) has been educating employers and employees about proper employment verification procedures and immigration related employment discrimination issues in connection with the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 ('IRCA'). N&A will use award funds to reach and educate employers and employees throughout the state of New Jersey and ultimately across the entire United States through training programs held on-site at Community Colleges throughout the State and at various New Jersey corporate offices, as well as providing web-based training to participants across the country.

N&A will utilize the immigration law experts on staff to conduct free regional public seminars within the State's five major metropolitan areas. The seminars will be 2-3 hours in duration, or in some cases they will be all day sessions. N&A is committed to providing practical information to employers particularly as it relates to national origin and citizenship discrimination, document abuse, and general IRCA compliance procedures. N&A will also offer a free public seminar via webinar. The webinar will incorporate a pre-approved PowerPoint presentation and training video which would permit employers to respond to workplace scenarios, ask questions, and receive accurate information.
