McDonald’s will pay a super-sized fine in a federal discrimination suit. The fast food chain will shell out over $350,000 in a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice. McDonald’s was accused of unfairly targeting immigrant employees who’re permanent residents by requiring them to show new resident cards when old ones expired. Know this, McDonald’s restaurants requiring this group of employees to show those cards is an illegal practice. The Justice Department’s investigation also found the company wasn’t requiring U.S. citizens to do the same. As a result of this successful discrimination suit, McDonald’s will also have to be monitored for the next 20 months. The Justice Department encourages current or former employees of the fast food giant, who have questions about this suit, to give them a call at 1-844-401-3737.
