Immigrant workers have same legal rights as all workers in the United States, with a few exceptions. Even undocumented workers are protected by our labor laws. But immigrant and undocumented workers are particularly vulnerable to exploitation by employers.
We help all workers, including immigrant workers, in a variety of ways:
- We regularly represent immigrant workers in wage theft cases in Philadelphia Municipal Court. Whether or not you are undocumented has nothing to do with the question of whether wages are owed.
- We also represent immigrant workers who have been harassed or discriminated against on the job. This includes being treated differently because of where you were born or the language you speak.
Although we do not handle workers compensation cases, we can direct clients to attorneys who do.
