What are my rights as an employee who contests a tentative nonconfirmation (TNC)?

If you contest a TNC, your employer may not terminate or suspend your employment, delay your training or employment start date, withhold or lower your pay, or take any other adverse action against you based on your decision to contest or during the time your case is still pending with the Department of Homeland Security or the Social Security Administration. 

Your employer may terminate your employment, however, if you choose not to contest a TNC. For additional information on employee rights and responsibilities, click here.
