Immigrant Wins Retaliation Case.

A farmworker in California’s Central Valley won a retaliation case against an attorney who represents a dairy company for reporting him to immigration officials to get him deported. The precedent-setting settlement includes a compensation of one million dollars. A legal expert who managed the lawsuit gives details of this case and discusses new laws passed in California in recent years to protect immigrant workers from retaliation, exploitation, and discrimination based on their immigration status. The new laws allow workers to recover monetary damages from employers who violate labor and employment laws.

Guest: Marisa Diaz, Staff Attorney, Legal Aid at Work, San Francisco, CA.
