I am an undocumented worker who picks fruit for a living. I have been taking abuse from my boss because I am from Mexico and he doesn't like that he has to hire us but he needs us to keep his costs down. Do I have rights even though I am an illegal immigrant?

All protections, rights and remedies available under state law are available to you regardless of your immigration status if you have applied for employment or have been employed. Your immigration status is irrelevant.
To figure out if your discrimination situation is illegal you must determine:
1. If you are an employee protected from discrimination under the law.
3. If your employer's conduct is considered discriminatory under the law.
