DoJ sues Facebook over H-1B visas

Must read


The Justice Department has taken legal action against Facebook for its practices of hiring foreign workers. In court documents first reported by The Wall Street Journal, the Justice Department alleges that Facebook “failed to properly advertise at least 2,600 positions between 2018 and 2019 that were filled by immigrants with highly skilled H-1B visas when the company applied to sponsor these workers for permanent residence, known as green cards.

According to the trial, Facebook has used “a recruitment process intentionally designed to deter American workers from applying,” for thousands of positions, it said, “reserved for temporary visa holders.” According to the DoJ, rather than posting these job openings on its website, the social network used a separate process that required applicants to apply by mail, often resulting in little or no applications from U.S. citizens.
