A number of job recruiters who call me seem to be calling over a bad connection and have a pretty thick accent. This, in itself, is not an indication that they are calling from abroad, but is there a general requirement on a person working with a recruiter to make sure that the recruiter is authorized to work in the US?
Specifically, if they are hiring individuals who are US citizens on US soil and they are hiring for work at employers' US locations. It seems like these recruiters are out of the reach of the US law and yet they are making decisions which are fairly heavily regulated in the US (such as employment decisions).
The Labor Department cannot regulate their actions, either (if their entire organization is abroad). Could I be on the hook for conspiring to go around the US law if I go along with them without first ensuring that they can legally work in the US?
