    Looks like Covenant would not accept lawful alternate identification and required a "green card"
    Trimmed from the article:

    "Federal law allows all workers to choose which valid, legally acceptable documentation to present to demonstrate their identity and permission to work, regardless of citizenship status, immigration status, or national origin."

    I thought a driver’s license wasn’t proof of citizenship. That’s why we all have to jump through hoops to get a gold star and the real ID?

    It's just you.

    Form I-9 Acceptable Documents | USCIS

    If a person complies with the I-9 requirements, that's all that's needed. Requiring more than that is slightly illegal, requiring it of only certain groups is definitely illegal.

    Yeah you're right something wasn't right. Covenant was asking for more documents than what was necessary. They discriminated definitely for sure. A company that has Bible verses on their trailers should do better. Lol.

    They probably saved a boatload of money when they shutdown SRT and brought their employees “into the fold”!

    Fined for hiring illegals or fined for trying not to

    Sad day

    That should scare everyone

    A student ID and a fake SS card is all it takes to meet those requirements

    Fun fact - most naturally born US Citizens cannot provide "A List Documents", and if the company is that worried about illegals, they should apply the same policy for all applicants, not just for some. And what's the bet that there is a pattern for who got asked for extra documents beyond "foreign "?
