The Department of Justice is the principal federal agency charged with enforcing federally-protected civil and constitutional rights. The 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 Civil Rights Division, Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices (OSC) (http://www.justice.gov/crt/about/osc/) is seeking an experienced attorney for the position of Trial Attorney in Washington, D.C. The Civil Rights Division is primarily responsible for enforcing federal statutes and executive orders that prohibit, among other things, unlawful discrimination in voting, education, employment, housing, police services, public accommodations and facilities, and federally funded and conducted programs. OSC enforces the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1324b, which prohibits employment discrimination on the basis of national origin and citizenship status, by conducting investigations and bringing enforcement actions before the Executive Office for Immigration Review and appeals in the federal circuit courts of appeal. OSC also engages in significant policy-related activities concerning immigration and workers' rights and conducts a nationwide outreach and public education program to assist employers, workers, attorneys and immigration advocates in understanding workers' rights and employer responsibilities under the anti-discrimination provision. The position may require significant travel.
