The Department of Justice announced today that it has reached a settlement agreement with U.S. Security Associates Inc. (USSA), which was recently acquired by Allied Universal Holdco LLC (Allied Universal) – the largest private security firm in the United States. Prior to its acquisition, USSA provided security services to hospitals, schools, financial institutions, government facilities, events, and other businesses. The settlement resolves a claim that USSA’s Falls Church, Virginia office violated the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) by discriminating against work-authorized non-U.S. citizens when verifying their work authorization. The settlement applies to USSA and Allied Universal.
