We Protect The Rights Of Noncitizens Regarding Workers’ Comp Benefits
The Pew Research Center reports that more undocumented immigrants live and work in California than in any other state. According to the Public Policy Institute of California, undocumented immigrants make up about 10 percent of the labor force in California.
If an illegal immigrant suffers a job-related injury, that worker is entitled to the same workers’ compensation benefits that a U.S. citizen can receive. Employers must cover the full medical costs of an undocumented worker who is injured on the job. In addition, undocumented workers can receive permanent and temporary disability payments.
We Protect The Rights Of Non-U.S. Citizens
Understandably, given the increased focus on retaining and deporting foreign-born individuals who are in the U.S. illegally, many injured workers who are noncitizens are hesitant to report work-related injuries.
At the Law Offices of Anthony Choe, we help injured undocumented workers in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California obtain the workers’ compensation benefits they are entitled to. We also protect these workers’ rights.
If an employer fires or otherwise retaliates against an undocumented worker for filing a workers’ compensation claim, we can file a discrimination lawsuit on their behalf.
