Are Undocumented Workers Covered Under Workers’ Compensation in California?

workers-compensation | Gaylord & Nantais

Can Undocumented Workers Collect Worker’s Compensation Benefits?

Because undocumented workers have the same rights as other workers, they are able to receive compensation if they are injured while working. An employer may try to prevent the injured worker from filing a claim, but the fact is, the worker is entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits, undocumented or not.

What is the Immigration Reform and Control Act?

The IRCA requires that every employer must be diligent in their hiring practices. This means only hiring workers who have the proper documentation to work in the United States. If a company is caught hiring undocumented immigrants, they are the ones at fault and will be hit with heavy fines and fees.

How Can a Worker’s Compensation Attorney Help?

If you are an undocumented worker and you have been injured, hiring a Workers’ Compensation attorney to try your case is your best shot at winning, in spite of your employer’s unwillingness to help. By calling a worker’s compensation attorney, it shows you are serious about your rights and that you know you deserve compensation.
