Trump administration sues Facebook, alleges company discriminated against U.S. workers

The Trump admin­is­tra­tion is suing Face­book over alle­ga­tions that the tech giant dis­crim­i­nat­ed against U.S. work­ers by cre­at­ing recruit­ment process­es that favored tem­po­rary visa hold­ers, accord­ing to a com­plaint filed by the Depart­ment of Jus­tice (DOJ) Thursday.

The com­plaint alleges that Face­book cre­at­ed a sep­a­rate hir­ing process for cer­tain tem­po­rary immi­gra­tion sta­tus hold­ers, such as H‑1B visa hold­ers, and alleges Face­book did not con­sid­er U.S. work­ers for more than 2,600 posi­tions with an aver­age salary of about $156,000.

The com­plaint is the Trump administration’s lat­est action tar­get­ing a big tech company.
