The Project

Many states have passed laws limiting workers’ rights. At their core is E-Verify, a federal program intended to “authorize” workers but actually restricts workers and immigrants from working while facilitating employer discrimination. Through outreach and education in collaboration with immigrants’ and workers rights groups and business associations, as well as multi-state litigation and policy advocacy, Vivek changed these laws through as-applied challenges to protect the rights of all workers.
