Background


National Immigration Law Center and AFL-CIO Seek to Restore Rights for Wrongly Fired Immigrant Workers

The National Immigration Law Center and the American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations have asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit to review a National Labor Relations Board decision denying back pay for workers who were fired after complaining about unfair working conditions at Mezonos Maven Bakery in Brooklyn, New York.

Employer That Knowingly Violated I-9 Requirement Ordered to Pay “Back Pay”

An administrative law judge in New York has ordered a back pay award to seven workers who had been fired by their employer, Mezonos Maven Bakery, for engaging in concerted activity by complaining together about their supervisor’s behavior towards them. Some of the seven workers had been employed by Mezonos for nearly 10 years. During this time, the employer had not asked some of them to provide employment authorization documents and had never completed I-9 employment eligibility verification forms for any of them.
