Attorneys from the Equal Justice Center help workers who aren’t paid for their work, regardless of immigration status.

Unauthorized workers are fully covered by basic wage and labor law protections and are entitled to pay, including overtime, for any work they completed. They could also qualify for the expanded paid leave in the Families First Act passed last week if their employer already offered paid leave.

For more information about the center go to equaljusticecenter.org or call 800-853-4028.
