In Alabama, an alien who is injured on the job does have protections as a United State citizen pursuant to the Alabama Workers’ Compensation Act. Regardless if they are hired legally or unlawfully, if the employer is subject to the Act then the hired alien has those some legal protections under the law as an injured United State citizen would have.
