Immigration Position Statement
At Perdue, we support a common-sense approach to immigration policy that enables willing workers to legally seek employment and that ensures a sufficient workforce to support labor-intensive industries, such as food manufacturing.
Perdue has never been cited or fined for violating immigration enforcement laws.
We only hire people who are authorized to work in the United States, and we have an extensive employment verification process. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer and do not discriminate.
Each applicant must present acceptable government identification, and we review that documentation. We go the extra step of electronically verifying Social Security numbers and work authorization numbers against government records. We've been participating in the government's Pilot Employment Verification Program for more than a decade. We are doing all that the law allows to verify each applicant's identity and employment eligibility. If we find that an associate has presented false information on an employment application, that person will be immediately terminated.
