Farmworker & Immigrant Worker Rights

MIRC’s Farmworker & Immigrant Worker Rights practice provides legal advice and representation to low-wage migrant and seasonal farmworkers and immigrant workers experiencing employment-related legal issues. 

The Farmworker and Immigrant Worker Rights' practice only represents workers and focuses on the following legal issues:

  • Farmworker individual and class action litigation (unpaid wages or bonuses, migrant housing conditions, failure to disclose, unlicensed farm labor contractors, false promises)
  • Wage and hour individual and class action litigation (unpaid wages, unlawful deductions, misclassification, joint-employer liability)
  • Workplace sexual harassment and discrimination (race, national origin, sex/gender, pregnancy)
  • Workplace health and safety (chemical and pesticide exposure, heat illness, lack of PPE)
  • Worksite immigration raids
  • Labor trafficking (including U and T visas), 
  • Non-citizens' access to unemployment insurance 
  • Immigrant access to workers' compensation 
  • Employment class action litigation
