IH  HEDLEY SCHOOL CAFETERIA Ag News by Zachary Wilcox Awareness Campaign Seeks To Prevent Discrimination In Hiring Ignorance of the law is no excuse, even though it's probably a major reason why employers in Texas and elsewhere are having difficulty complying with the anti-discrimination provisions of the 8-year-old Im- migration Reform and Control Act. In an effort to help employers better understand IRCA, the Texas Agricultural Extension Service has teamed with the U.S. Department of Justice and the Texas Office for Immigration and Refugee Affairs in mounting an awareness campaign through the news media this summer. The campaign asks employers to "Look at the facts, not at the faces: and thereby reduce hiring discrimination and other unfair practices against workers. IRCA requires employers to verify identity and work eligibility of all workers. The law also prohibits employers from treating workers and prospective workers unfairly and work eligibility of all workers. Special Counsel William Ho-Gonzalez of the U.S. Department of Justice says discrimination is "an altogether too common phenomenon." Fear of penalties, combined with ignorance of the law, are at the root of the pattern of illegai behavior by employers, the attorney says. Violations are common in every sector of the economy. "This is not unique to the agriculture industry,' Ho-Gonzalez says. The law requires that employers fill out an I-9 form on each new em. ployee, confirming that proper work documents have been presented, stud Dr. Richard Edwards, an agricultural economist and expert on IRCA for the Extension Service. "For the first five years of the act, the focus was primarily on ensuring that employers adhered to their responsibilities relating to completing I-9's, and maintained these forms for the prescribed length of time," he said. Now the laws anti-discrimination provisions also are being em- phasxL Prior to the enactment of IRCA, Edwards exp/ained, there was worry that employers would try to skirt the new law by refusing to hire people they considered "foreigners." "Congress reacted to these fears by writing penalties into the act which would be imposed ff employers were found guilty of discrimination during the hiring process," Edwards said. "Unfortunately these fears have proven to be well-founded, as recent studies have shown that 19 percent of employers nationwide admitted to discriminatory hiring practices." In Texas, that proportion jumps to 28 percent. The statewide information campaign this summer is directed par- ticularly at employers in small businesses who may not be well informed about IRCA provisions. Information packets are being sent in late July to local chambers of commerce, trade associations and other employer groups, especially in rural areas. An informative brochure about the law and an instructional video are available through local offices of the Extension Service. The video may be borrowed from a county Extension office,or employer organiza- tions may request a copy in English or Spanish in limited supply from the Department of Agricultural Communications, 201 Reed McDonald, Col- lege Station, Texas 77843-2112.
