Immigrant workers face unique challenges in enforcing their rights in the workplace. This session addresses hurdles that may come up in litigating cases on behalf of immigrant workers, particularly those in low-wage industries. Learn what potential claims are available to these workers, including race and national origin discrimination and retaliation based on immigration enforcement. Also addressed are issues that come up in discovery, such as disclosure of immigration status--and seeking a protective order on behalf of clients--filing under a pseudonym, and handling litigation while a client has a pending immigration application. Immigration enforcement actions which target immigrant workers, like workplace raids and I-9 audits, are also discussed.
