Eunice Cho Calls for Immigrant Worker Protections

Former Skadden Fellow Eunice Cho (’10) of the National Employment Law Project in Oakland authored an op-ed for The San Jose Mercury News about the need for stronger protections for immigrant workers against retaliation (“Exploiting Immigrants: Labor Laws Need to Protect Undocumented Workers, Too,” April 24). “Congress and the White House now agree that the time has come to reform our immigration laws. In addition to creating a broad path to citizenship, a new policy must protect the labor rights of immigrant workers who stand up to wage theft and labor abuses,” the article said. “California should also enact stronger anti-retaliation protections, and implement policies to protect immigrant workers and strengthen labor law enforcement.”
