The State of California Versus The Trump Administration:
How to Manage Workplace Immigration Issues in
Today's Polarizing Climate


Immigration has been a hot topic in Sacramento, as the California State Legislature was active on a number of fronts to respond to the actions of the Trump administration. The passage of Assembly Bill 450, which, among other things, prohibits employers from voluntarily consenting to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) access to the worksite without a judicial warrant, requires employers to provide their workers with notice of certain immigration enforcement actions, and imposes new statutory penalties for violations of the law, is a recent example.

Join Fisher Phillips partner Raul Zermeno as he provides you with the tools you need to:

  • Ensure compliance with AB450;
  • Be prepared if ICE comes knocking at your place of business; and
  • Avoid I-9 pitfalls

He provides day-to-day preventative counseling to clients on all aspects of the employment process including hiring, disciplinary actions, and terminations. He frequently provides advice regarding obligations for leaves of absences, the interactive process and reasonable accommodations.
