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?
I applied for a job at a photo lab and was told by the employer that he had had trouble with "my kind" before. My mother is Middle Eastern and my father was from South Africa so I am not sure what kind that is. Can An Employer Refuse To Hire Me Because He Has Had Bad Experiences With "My Kind" Before?
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.
