A CLASH ON USING E-VERIFY. A supermarket chain in the San Francisco Bay Area owned by a Mexican immigrant made headlines after joining E-Verify, the Department of Homeland Security’s program to screen immigration status of employees. A union trying to organize the workers at the grocery chain says the decision to join the program by this immigrant-owned and immigrant-serving business is hypocritical. Both sides debate the issue. An employment law expert also joins the edition to discuss the rights and responsibilities of employers and employees regarding the federal employment verification program.
