Export Controls Compliance and Anti-Discrimination Laws

What should companies dealing with export-controlled items do to ensure compliance with both the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and applicable U.S. export control laws?

In our latest Critical Compliance video, partner Soo-Mi Rhee discusses export controls and how they interact with anti-discrimination laws, highlighting best practices from the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division’s fact sheet.

U.S. export control laws prohibit certain goods, technology, and data from non-U.S. persons; however, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) prevents hiring decisions based on citizenship. Companies must navigate this dual challenge and follow certain steps to stay in compliance.

Our Critical Compliance video series offers timely insights into hot topics and best practices for corporate compliance programs.
