The federal government claims Garland Sales, Inc, a rug manufacturer is violating law by asking employees for too much documentation.

The Justice Department says in one case, Garland sales rescinded a job offer to someone who didn't speak fluent English, and didn't have a green card.

That employee was a legal US citizen.
