Undocumented Workers and Workers’ Comp for Injuries
When undocumented workers are hurt on the job, they are often too afraid to report their injuries. It is important to understand that you do not have to be a legal immigrant to get benefits. You can claim workers’ compensation benefits and lost wages, even if you were paid in cash or did not file taxes.
We know that you may be worried about being reported to U.S. immigration. However, it is wrong for an employer to threaten you with your immigration status. We can refer you to an immigration lawyer to help you with your status if you have questions.
