Hiring Immigrants

Recently, the US Department of Justice (DOJ) filed a lawsuit against an Arizona community college district over discrimination when hiring legal immigrants.  Supposedly, the college district was demanding too many documents, going beyond what is required by federal law.  The DOJ is wanting to penalize the district $1,100 per violation (over $270k total), according to Politico:

What should you do?  Know what documents (and how many) should be shown at the time of hiring.  (You should not be demanding ID at the time of interview)  The USCIS has a helpful guide (m-274) that shows examples of acceptable documents:
