Protections in California Based on Immigration Status

Prohibited Retaliation

An additional aspect of AB 263 (discussed above) is its prohibition of “unfair immigration-related practices” when an employee asserts any rights protected by the California Labor Code or by any local ordinance applicable to employees. “Unfair immigration-related practices” include: (1) requesting more or different documentation than is sufficient under federal law governing employment verification, or refusing to honor such documents that on their face reasonably appear to be genuine, (2) misusing the E-Verify system, (3) threatening to file or the filing of a false police report, and (4) threatening to contact or contacting immigration authorities. Significantly, AB 263 creates a private right of action and provides for recovery of attorneys’ fees by a prevailing employee or other person “who is the subject of an unfair immigration-document practice.”
