This Week's Question

  DACA Response

On September 12, President Donald Trump announced that the federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program will be phased out. DACA provides temporary legal status and work authorization to approximately 750,000 individuals who, without further action, may become ineligible to work over the next 2 years. As the federal government considers next steps for existing DACA recipients, which steps should employers take?
A) Review all employee verification records to determine whether any staff members may be authorized under DACA and, therefore, whether their work authorization may be at risk.
B) Ask employees to self-identify as DACA recipients, then reverify only those workers as soon as possible, well before their documentation expires.
C) Treat any and all employees with temporary work authorizations the same, reverifying only upon expiration of the existing authorization.
D) Refrain from hiring workers whose work authorization has been granted under DACA, since this authorization is only temporary and will expire now that the program is being phased out.
