Houston Community College fined for their hiring practices
Houston Community College is in some hot water for discriminating hiring practices.
The Justice Department says for the past two years the school has required job applicants who were not U.S. citizens to provide proof they were allowed to work while not making the same requirment of all other applicants.
HCC has been ordered to pay a fine for creating hurdles for noncitizens who were trying to get a job.
The civil case began after a woman claimed she was discriminated against when she applied for a job. HCC has been ordered to pay over $85,000 in civil penalties and changes their hiring practices.
HCC employes over 6,000 people in the Houston area.
