Social Security Number Not Matched, Employer Will Be Punished

World Journal, Posted: Oct 24, 2008

WASHINGTON D.C. Michael Chertoff, Secretary of Homeland Security, talked Thursday about the new practice of issuing no-match letters from the Homeland Security Department. The World Journal reports that warning notes will be sent out if the employees social security number doesnt match the Departments record. It will be used as evidence of employing illegal immigrants. If the employer fails to solve the problem, a fine of $2,200 will be imposed. Opponents point out that there are many mistakes in the Homeland Security Departments record system that may cause no-matches. They said the new regulation is likely to encourage discrimination towards employing immigrants or minorities.
