Unfair Immigration-Related Practices
On June 28, 2014, California Governor Jerry Brown signed legislation (A.B. 2751) amending recently enacted California law that prohibits employers from retaliating against undocumented workers who engage in protected activity.
Among other things, the law:
Expands the definition of “unfair immigration-related practice” to include threatening to file or filing of a false report or complaint with any state or federal agency.
Prohibits an employer from discharging or in any manner discriminating, retaliating, or taking any adverse action against an employee because the employee updates or attempts to update personal information based on a lawful change of name, Social Security number, or federal employment authorization document.
The law goes into effect on January 1, 2015.
