New Law Restricts Immigration Enforcement at Worksites — What You Need to Know

January 11, 2018 | From HRCalifornia Extra

​​As of January 1, California employers must comply with strict rules passed under the new Immigrant Worker Protection Act (AB 450), which protects workers in the state from immigration enforcement while they’re on the job. Under AB 450, all employers, regardless of size, must limit Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents’ access to both the worksite and employee records, and they must follow new notice obligations.

The Labor Commissioner and the Attorney General have authority to enforce the Act’s provisions. And if you aren’t prepared, missteps can result in varying fines.
