LAS-ELC Urges EEOC to Protect Employment Rights of Immigrant Workers

Too often, immigrant workers are subject to overt discrimination, sexual harassment, hostile work environments, or confront oppressive English-only policies in the workplace.  An added challenge for national origin minorities is that employers routinely claim that the worker’s perceived immigration status is relevant to discrimination claims.
