Did you know that individuals who are admitted as refugees or granted asylum in the United States are U.S. persons under the ITAR? Following its issuance in April 2023 of guidance on how to avoid immigration-related discrimination when complying with export controls, DOJ continues its effort to enforce these legal requirements. This new case should serve as a reminder to ensure your company’s HR practices and export compliance program are in line with applicable legal requirements.

Good reminder that compliance needs upper management oversight. A C-level compliance officer would mitigate the risks of separate HR and Export Compliance silos.
