One of the most common misconceptions that employers have is that illegal immigrants cannot sue their employers. Illegal immigrants can sue their employers in Federal Court for the non-payment of minimum wage, and overtime, pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Under the FLSA it does not matter whether someone is in the country illegally, nor will they be deported for filing a lawsuit. There are places in the country where an illegal immigrant cannot bring a Federal Lawsuit, but in Florida, Alabama, Georgia, and other states, an illegal immigrant can bring a lawsuit under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Employers have to pay all of their employees in accordance with Federal Regulations or risk an expensive lawsuit. - By Joshua H. Sheskin, Esq., 954-880-9500 - JHS@LubellRosen.com
