28 Mar Do the wage and hour laws apply to undocumented aliens?
Yes, immigration is a matter of Federal Law, but under California State Law, you cannot be discriminated against in terms of your entitlement to compensation based on your immigration status.
Whether you can recover the compensation that you should have been paid depends on a number of factors, some of them complicated. But, just because you may not have legal immigration status does not mean that you are not entitled to be paid according to the wage and hour laws of California.
If you believe that your employer has violated California wage and hour laws, contact an employment lawyer today at the Khadder Law Firm for a free initial consultation.
