Undocumented workers often live and work under extreme stress. As an undocumented immigrant, it can be difficult to know what your rights are, particularly as they pertain to your employment. In fact, it has been said that there are more undocumented workers in California than anywhere else in the U.S.

So, what happens when a serious injury occurs? Undocumented employees, more often than not, don’t have regular benefits. Many are scared to come forward after suffering a serious work injury. At Glauber Berenson Vego, our dedicated workers’ comp attorneys have assisted injured workers for more than three decades. We can help you through the process of securing compensation for undocumented workers in Glendale.

Can I Get Workers’ Compensation if I’m Undocumented?

California has state laws that protect the rights of undocumented workers. In fact, under California laws, undocumented workers have the right to:

  • Earn overtime pay, where appropriate
  • File a claim against their employer with the State Labor Commission
  • File health and safety complaints against their employer
  • Receive workers’ compensation benefits

Obtaining workers’ compensation is largely dependent on the type of injury suffered and the circumstances surrounding it. Our firm can help you determine if you are eligible for temporary or permanent benefits, and we can help you formulate a plan for moving forward.
