Senate Bill 1001 is an immigration-related employment practices law that Governor Jerry Brown signed on September 30 this year. This bill addresses unfair employment practices with respect to demand for immigration documentation for employment. This change to the labor code strengthens worker protections against immigrant status discrimination. It is designed to address concerns voiced by various public policy groups that DACA program participants are being discriminated against when providing employment authorization documents (EAD).
