The post DOJ Sues SpaceX Over Discrimination Against Asylees and Refugees in Hiring Process! appeared first on Coinpedia Fintech News
The Justice Department files a lawsuit against SpaceX for discriminating against asylees and refugees in hiring.
SpaceX wrongly argued that they could only hire U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents because of federal export control laws, which were not true.
The lawsuit alleges that SpaceX discouraged asylees and refugees from applying, failed to fairly consider their applications and refused to hire them.
The US Department of Justice (DOJ) has filed a lawsuit against SpaceX, alleging that the company discriminated against asylum-seekers and refugees in hiring for positions at its headquarters in California.
According to the suit, SpaceX disregarded immigration laws by requiring non-US citizens to present specific documents during the hiring process, leading to discrimination against asylees and refugees who were unable to provide these documents. The DOJ is seeking civil penalties, lost wages, and other damages for the affected individuals. SpaceX has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
SpaceX Responses to the Lawsuit!
As of now, SpaceX has not reacted to a request for comment regarding the lawsuit. The company is known for its work in the aerospace industry and has close ties to the US government, with contracts for delivering cargo and transporting astronauts to the International Space Station.
Allegations of discrimination against asylum seekers and refugees could cause significant damage to the company’s reputation. It remains to be seen how SpaceX will respond to the lawsuit and what reforms they may put in place to prevent future instances of discrimination.
To sum it up, the lawsuit is a wake-up call for SpaceX to address their discrimination practices and work towards fair and equal hiring opportunities for all applicants, regardless of their status.
