Abstract : The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRcA) requires employers to verify the employment eligibility of workers. It imposes civil and criminal penalties (sanctions) against employers who knowingly hire unauthorized workers. The law also requires GAO to issue three annual reports to Congress for the purpose of determining whether IRCA'S employer verification and sanctions section (referred to hereafter as the sanctions section) has (1) created an unnecessary burden on employers, (2) been carried out satisfactorily, and (3) resulted in a pattern of discrimination against eligible workers. GAO is also to determine whether frivolous discrimination complaints have been filed under IRCA'S antidiscrimination section to harass employers. This is the third GAO report.
