WHD Ensuring Proper Wages in the Workplace

Don't Deport Abused Workers

Description of Idea :

DOL and DHS must recommit to protecting immigrant workers, in all immigration statuses, during investigations by the DOL. No workers should be held in immigration detention or removed from the US until after the full investigation is complete, prosecution or civil action is complete, and workers have had ample opportunity to confer with immigration counsel. DOL should proactively provide all workers who are victims and witnesses of workplace violations that qualify for T or U Visas with a certification.
