Immigration Compliance Plan

The Company policies include a commitment to non-discrimination based on race, national origin and immigration status. Pursuant to the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), which protects work authorized individuals from employment discrimination on the basis of citizenship status or national origin, employment decisions will not be made on the basis of a person’s national origin, race or immigration status except to the extent necessary to comply with the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).

In those situations, the Company will need to obtain information necessary to comply with the requirements of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). This will include collection of documentation to establish one of three categories of citizenship/ immigration status: (1) U.S. Citizenship; (2) Permanent Residency (Green Card) and (3) Asylum or Refugee Status (formally recognized or assigned such status by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement).

If an applicant or employee does not meet the category applicable to their anticipated work for the Company, the Company cannot hire such applicant. In order to ensure ITAR compliance, all applicants and employees of the Company will have their immigration status checked through a system called “E-Verify.” If the findings on the E-Verify search are not accurate, please contact Human Resources and obtain copies of all documents related to your work status. Employees who are not authorized to work in the United States cannot be employed at the Company.
