Ethical Considerations in Representing Immigrant Clients in Employment Cases
Representing clients from other countries brings the joy of learning about different cultures, and also comes with challenges:
- How does immigration status impact damage awards?
- How can you protect your clients against immigration-related threats by the employer?
- Can an undocumented worker bring the same claims as a U.S. citizen?
- What are the tax implications of back wage damages for your undocumented client?
Carol Brooke, Senior Attorney with the Workers’ Rights Project of the North Carolina Justice Center, will give practical tips as well as an overview of how immigration status may impact your immigrant client’s employment claims.
Come learn how to prepare yourself so you aren’t caught off guard if your client returns to their home country, was working under a false name, or doesn’t have a Social Security number.
