DOJ Sues Facebook for Discriminating against American Workers:
The Justice Department filed a lawsuit against Facebook on Thursday for allegedly discriminating against American workers in its hiring process.
During an investigation beginning in 2018, the DOJ found that Facebook intentionally held about 2,600 positions for workers with temporary visas who the company sponsored for green cards. The positions reserved by the company for temporary workers paid salaries of $156,000 on average.
According to the suit, Facebook channeled those positions to temporary workers in part by refusing to advertise those job openings on its website, requiring applications by physical mail to dissuade potential American job seekers. --->READ MORE HERE

DOJ Accuses Facebook of Denying Jobs to American Workers in Favor of Foreigners:
The Trump administration is accusing Facebook in a lawsuit of discriminating against U.S. workers in favor of foreigners with special visas to fill more than 2,600 high-paying jobs.
The Justice Department announced the suit on Thursday, alleging that the social media giant refused to recruit, consider or hire qualified and available U.S. workers for the positions that Facebook reserved for temporary visa holders.
Facebook sponsored the visa holders for green cards authorizing them to work in the U.S. permanently.
The action followed a two-year investigation by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. --->READ MORE HERE
