Chair Hernández Hails Assembly for Clearing Bill to Protect Immigrant Workers Against Retaliation

Sacramento – Today, Assembly Bill 263 authored by Assemblymember Roger Hernández passed the Assembly Floor on a 52-22 vote.  This bill addresses the retaliation of employers against immigrant employees who are vulnerable to workplace abuse due to their immigration status.   

“Hard Working residents have gone too long without adequate protections in the workplace against their employers.  AB 263 makes it unlawful for an immigration–related practice committed by an employer, with the intent of retaliating against workers for exercising their rights which are protected under the California Labor Code or a local ordinance,” said Hernández.
