Fighting For Immigrant and Workers Right!

CRLA won a Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision affirming federal protection against retaliation for workers who exercise their rights. Dairy worker Jose Arias sued his employer for wage and hour violations, and the attorney for the diary responded by reporting Mr. Arias to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in an attempt to remove him from the United States and stop the case from going forward.

"We hope this decision helps workers come forward and reminds employers, their attorneys, and others acting on their behalf that there are consequences if they choose to retaliate against workers," said CRLA's Blanca A. Bañuelos.

This victory was made possible with the help of Legal Aid at Work!
