This Week's Member Tip

Immigration Laws

Labor unions, immigrant advocacy groups, and employers have fought for years over what federal law should say about 2015.04.13 membertip wages.hoursemployers hiring workers who are not U.S. citizens. The battle is an important one because of how such laws can encourage tensions and conflicts among workers based on their nationality or how they can stand in the way of discriminatory employment decisions based on national origin. To control the hiring of undocumented workers, federal law—and possibly your union contract—sets forth requirements as to what personal identification documents your employer can insist upon seeing, and when.
