    Answered . I don't see how it will affect you, if not the employer. I highly recommend you to meet with an attorney now. Many attorneys seem to keep flexible hours as many undocumented aliens may not be able to make it to the office during the business hours. Call the law office and ask if they would have an earlier opening. You may want to check the pro bono clinic/community legal services. Good luck.
