Protecting Jobs

If the threat of retaliation or blacklisting has caused you to fear losing your job, or if you have lost your job due to retaliation or blacklisting, contact Migrant Legal Aid for help.

Maintaining work and earning an income is essential for migrant farmworkers in order to secure their basic needs. Therefore, Migrant Legal Aid helps to protect the jobs of migrant farmworkers from unlawful retaliation. 

Migrant Legal Aid offers education about laws and rights of workers regarding retaliation. Employers cannot retaliate or discriminate against anyone who has filed a complaint. Furthermore, employers are prohibited from punishing job applicants or employees for asserting their rights to be free from employment discrimination.  

With adequate knowledge of one’s rights, migrant farmworkers can feel secure when filing a complaint or standing up against employment discrimination.
