Labor Law Attorneys Who Protect The Rights Of Immigrant Workers

Last updated on December 13, 2023

At Hedberg & Boulton, P.C., in Des Moines, our labor law lawyers represent the rights of foreign and immigrant workers, including Spanish-speaking workers, throughout Iowa. A significant portion of our practice involves helping immigrants, both Spanish-speaking workers as well as workers who have come to Iowa from around the world, obtain workplace justice, compensation for their work-related injuries, or resolve issues interfering with their ability to work. Our experienced labor lawyers are eager to explain your rights as an Iowa worker, whether you are new to Iowa or have worked in Iowa for years.

Protecting Immigrant Employees From Workplace Injuries

Industries with high populations of immigrant workers are traditionally workplaces where on-the-job injuries are common. These fields include manufacturing work, meatpacking, and farm labor. In fact, these jobs can expose workers to dangerous activities that can cause serious and even fatal injuries.

Workplace injuries in these industries are very common. Any worker should pursue a workers’ compensation claim for their injuries if it is available. We will review your claim and explain your rights and options to you. You can decide, with no obligation, whether or not you want our workers’ compensation attorneys to help you.

Reporting Injuries And Unsafe Working Conditions: Facing The Fear of Retaliation

Spanish-speaking workers frequently do not report work injuries or unsafe working conditions because they fear retaliation from their employer. Unsafe working conditions affect every worker.

Our experienced employment law attorneys can help protect you from employer retaliation and ensure a safer workplace at the same time. Aside from workers’ compensation, we have attorneys that practice in labor and employment law and other areas of law related to workplace rights.

Spanish-Speaking Staff

Our Spanish-speaking paralegal, Bethany, is able to understand your concerns and assist our attorneys in answering your questions on the phone or at our downtown Des Moines office. Our goal is to make sure you know your rights and be sure that you understand your options. For Spanish-speaking legal assistance contact Bethany at Hedberg & Boulton, P.C..

She is available to answer any questions you have about our attorneys, our services, and our fees. She is dedicated to making sure our Spanish-speaking clients are comfortable and knowledgeable about their rights and explain how our practice serves to protect employees’ rights in the workplace.
