PRAIRIEVILLE- The Justice Department has settled an employment discrimination case against a Louisiana-based company that provides craft services to industries.

Brand Energy and Industrial Services of Prairieville had been accused of discriminating against non-U.S. citizens while verifying employment eligibility. The Justice Department said a work-authorized immigrant had lost his job when he couldn't provide documentation beyond what is required by law.

The company agreed to pay just over $43,000 in civil penalties and $7,200 in back play, plus interest.

The company also agreed to monitoring provisions and training for human resources personnel.
