Many employers have interpreted Hoffman to mean that undocumented workers are not entitled to back pay at all. Such is not the case. Hoffman, as well as a line of federal courts interpreting it holds that employees are entitled to back pay under the wage and hour laws such as the Fair Labor Standards Act, regardless of their immigration status for hours actually worked. Courts have reasoned that holding employers liable for failing to pay undocumented workers is even consistent with immigration policy. As one court put it: “If employers know they have to pay illegal aliens the same wages as legal workers, they are far less likely to hire an illegal worker and run the risk of subjecting themselves to sanctions” under federal immigration laws.

no but you did say not to get upset with her, it was congress' doing. So what were you saying? I don't believe I said it was law or you said it was, my comments were related to your saying it was Congress. You have no idea anymore than I have an idea. Regardless, the public service announcement, if you want to call it that, sucks!!!
