California prohibits retaliation against immigrant workers

California Labor and Workforce Development Agency stated that the decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) does not require employers to re-verify work authorization documents. “Any action or attempt by employers to re-investigate or re-verify work authorization documents in order to retaliate against any immigrant worker is unlawful in California.”
Additional resources on immigration issues and to find local organizations that can help answer DACA-related questions are available through qualified nonprofit organizations contracted with the California Department of Social Services, Immigration Branch. A list of these organizations are available online at http://www.cdss.ca.gov/Benefits-Services/More-Services/Immigration-Services/Immigration-Services-Contractors.
