The Office of the Special Counsel (OSC) reached a settlement with Omnibus Express for immigration related unfair employment practices. OSC concluded that Omnibus Express engaged in a pattern or practice of citizenship status discrimination in recruiting and hiring practices against U.S. citizens and other protected individuals. Omnibus agreed to pay civil penalties of $37,800 for the violations and to set aside $208.000 to compensate qualified individuals for economic damages.
