Representing Low-Wage Workers & Immigrant Workers, From NELA's 2019 Wage & Hour Seminar
Published by National Employment Lawyers Association

Low wage and immigrant workers are easily exploited and often become the victims of systemic wage and hour violations. Effectively representing these workers has and will continue to present unique challenges for private wage and hour lawyers. The panelists discuss: the impact of immigration status on available relief; working with low-wage and immigrant-based community organizations; preparing clients for depositions and trial, including addressing immigration-related questions during the course of depositions; additional defense tactics and how to combat them; the legal implications for employers who report workers to ICE, and preventing and redressing retaliation.
