A few days ago I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with my family and colleagues and discuss some important issues that I want to address with you.
I also wanted to address the recent news that some employers are using ARIZOAN IDENTITY to discriminate against their employees.
The American Civil Liberties Union and a number of other groups filed a lawsuit against the Department of Justice in California, seeking to stop the use of the ARIZoA identification number as an identification number.
Since we all know the ARISTA identification numbers are very valuable to employers, we have a responsibility to educate and inform our clients, colleagues and the general public about what is going on with ARIZOTA IDENTITIES.
One of the key issues that we need to address is the potential for discriminatory uses of ARIZOTAS IDENTITIES.
If you have an ARIZona ID, your employer is using it to screen prospective employees for discrimination, to determine whether you are a suitable candidate for a job, and to deny or promote qualified candidates based on your race, gender, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.
You may be surprised to learn that there is a large body of research that has demonstrated that ARIZOs IDENTIFICATIONS have no discriminatory effects, that they do not discriminate against any protected class, and that the AROSA is not discriminatory when used for legitimate business purposes.
As a result, we believe that the DOJ should discontinue the use and distribution of the identification numbers for ARIZotas business purpose and that any use of an ARISA ID to discriminate is illegal.
We are committed to making sure that all of our clients are treated fairly and with respect.
I want you to know that we stand behind our clients and will continue to advocate for their rights.
Please sign the petition to end discriminatory use of ARISOTAS IDs in the employment arena.
