Undocumented Workers’ Right to Compensation for Workplace Injuries

After a 10-year legal battle, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights has issued a decision affirming the right of millions of undocumented workers to protection from exploitation and discrimination in the workplace. The challenge, led by the National Employment Law Project, the ACLU, and the University of Pennsylvania Law School’s Transnational Legal Clinic, was brought on behalf of two workers who were reported to immigration authorities and prosecuted, rather than receiving the treatment to which they were entitled for injuries suffered on the job.

In its decision, the IACHR determined that the United States is responsible for violating workers’ human rights by denying them the right to equality before the law and access to justice and labor protections. The IAHCR made several recommendations to address those violations including:

  • providing adequate monetary compensation to remedy the violations;
  • ensuring all federal and state laws and policies, on their face and in practice, prohibit any and all distinctions in employment and labor rights based on immigration status and work authorization, once a person commences work as an employee;
  • prohibiting employer inquiries into the immigration status of a worker asserting his or her employment and labor rights in litigation or in administrative complaints;
  • ensuring that all workers are granted the same rights and remedies for violations of their rights in the workplace;
  • establishing a procedure for undocumented workers involved in workers’ compensation proceedings to request the suspension of deportations until receipt of appropriate medical treatment and resolution of claims; and
  • improving and enhancing the detection of employers who violate labor rights and exploit workers because of immigration status and impose adequate sanctions against those employers.

  21. it will proceed to the next milestone only after the prior milestone is completed, will that expose the 787 to another delay? Or, put another way, can the gauntlet tests go smoothly, or will there be time spent between them remedying the problems encountered in the test so that alot of time is spent in remediation that delays the completion of the series? I think you previously answered that alot of testing has gone into this aspect alreay so it is not like starting from scratch. Could we be surprised and the plane moves through it all quickly and without complications?

  22. I’m thinking this is not Alliance/Manticore/Andermani support. I’m not sure how they’d pull it off, but my first guess would be Mesa through puppets. Maybe one from the Alignment group (?) that is supposed to take over when the League fractures. My second guess is that Sollie/Frontier security group that was planning on splitting off on it’s own before all of this started. (Sorry. Too lazy to get up and look ‘em up. The one over by Torch.)

  23. I was surprised at first to learn this is your favourite of the bunch considering Mon Numero 10 sounded more your style but then I remembered your split perfume personality! it does sound very wearable and likely to appeal to fans of the Jardins. Any similarity with Champaca? I cannot wait for your review of Mon Numero 7.

  24. I really like the Strava app. No ANT+ support on the mobile app, but it does produce segment matching (ranking activity versus other users on the same geographical course segments, like hills or popular trails) and nice pacing plots versus distance. Version 1.0 defaults uploads to cycling (which can then be fixed on the ) but I understand this will be fixed in version 2. For ANT+ sport data, it still requires web-based uploads, for example from a Garmin Edge 500.

  25. Hi, Neat post. There is an issue along with your website in web explorer, might check this… IE nonetheless is the market leader and a large element of other people will leave out your fantastic writing because of this problem.

  26. Ei kenenkään päähän voi nähdä (onneksi) milloin kyseessä on mielenhäiriö, milloin harkittu teko. Opiskeluaikana oli pysäyttävää käydä töissä suomen toisessa kriminaalimielisairaalassa, jossa kaikki potilaat ovat vaaralliseksi luokiteltuja henkilöitä. Jouluaamun kirkossa “Enkeli taivaan” kajahti niin aidolla voimalla, että lukkarillekin oli tippa tulla silmään.En tietty tarkoita, että tällä periaatteella saisi mitään tehdä, itselle tai toisille. Ne positiivisemmat tunteet ovat ainoa hyvä syy koskea toiseen ihmiseen.

  28. Hi Richard, Yes, dreams are a telltale sign for some probably due to their sleep disruption.Alcohol always worsens sleep so congratulations for getting rid of that.Sounds like you might be using some CBT techniques for anxiety, and that definitely helps some.It sounds like you’ve got some strategies working and maybe just need to add a couple more.Thanks for sharing.- Natasha

  29. is dan ook het moeten dat mij heeft genekt. Ik wilde al eerder stoppen, maar de wereld winnen is ook leuk. Bovendien zou ik dan mijn online vrienden in de steek laten.

  31. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  32. Of course you and I realize it is the same old, same old Ron, but Ms. Clark and friends are spending millions of dollars of our money on TeeVee ads trying to convince people who are not paying attention that it is not. The same old, same old I mean.OK?.

I get it! ;D I just hope that this won’t inhibit your decision! If this is an outstanding deturrent, I would hope that maybe we could come to some sort of mutually condusive agreement, maybe?! Maybe we could pay for your drive time???? Just wanted to put that out there…Thanks for your time and consideration.Rae Hunter

  41. Hi. I think do understand the questions. You are asking about whether the person who receives the gift has to pay customs. That depends on whether you live outside of United States, which is where I’m living now. If you live in US there are no custom fees and there might be a custom fee when the item is shipped internationally. But I try to do as much as possible so that there is no fee. Things like marking it as a “gift” on the package and writing a lower value price. So far there haven’t been any problems with this. Thanks for asking.
