Civil Lawsuits Increasing Against Employers of Foreign Nationals for Violations of Labor and Immigration Laws

Jonathan A. Grode

Historically, most enforcement actions against employers for violating
labour laws or for discrimination against foreign nationals and domestic
workers employed in the U.S. were pursued by government. However, in a
paper recently published at an ABA conference, Green and Spiegel U.S.
attorneys Jonathan Grode and Alex Varghese (along with co-author Brian
Green of Murthy Law Firm) argue that civil actions against employers for
these offences against foreign workers are increasingly common and often successful.

The paper canvasses the range of recent causes of action and discusses how
plaintiff counsel can seek redress on behalf of foreign workers, and what
employers can do to create policies and procedures to prevent violations
and to mitigate damages for violations that have already occurred. (Click
