Immigration Status at Work

Posted By || Jun 4, 2012

On Monday, March 12, 2012 New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman vowed to never ask your immigration status or share immigration information with federal authorities. He emphasized this issue in the context of an individual who is working illegally for an employer and is being taken advantage of because they cannot do anything about it. A scenario he uses is that of a cook who was not paid for three months, or is being underpaid by tens of thousands of dollars as a garment worker, being pressured by your boss to lie at a hearing in order to cover for him having underpaid you.

According to the Attorney General these are real situations that immigrants find themselves in. If you are facing a scenario like this then it is important for you to know that there are legal representatives who will fight for your rights and strive to help you achieve your goals and desires. It is a very serious situation when an individual is taken advantage of regardless of their immigration status. It is your constitutional right to a safe work environment and to fair wages.
