The Department of Justice is the principal federal agency charged with enforcing federally-protected civil and constitutional rights. The Civil Rights Division's mission comprises two prongs: (1) vigorous enforcement of the criminal laws prohibiting civil rights abuses, including 'color of law' violations by state officers, trafficking in humans, conspiracy to violate federally- protected rights, and criminal interference with housing rights; and (2) defending individuals' federal civil rights through a panoply of means including civil litigation, consent orders, settlements, technical assistance, public outreach, and education programs.
The work of the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration Related Unfair Employment Practices (IRUEP) can be divided into three major areas: (1) protecting U.S. citizens and legal immigrants from employment discrimination based upon national origin and citizenship or immigration status, unfair documentary practices during the employment eligibility verification process, and retaliation through enforcement, (2) preventing unlawful discrimination through outreach, and (3) providing advice and counsel on policy issues affecting the civil rights of U.S. citizens and immigrants.
Division offices are near the Metro transportation system or other public transportation, and are conveniently accessible to restaurants, museums and other Washington, D.C. area attractions. Most jobs in the Division offer alternative work schedules and other family friendly opportunities. Most employees who commute by public transportation are eligible for a transit subsidy benefit.
