Workers' Rights Centers provides a place for low-income workers to come to learn about their rights as workers, and to get help as they pursue legal claims to wages, unemployment benefits, and criminal records clean up. The Center provides self-help legal assistance to workers, through written materials and one-on-one interviews, helping people to understand their legal rights and analyze their legal options.
You can help at:
El Monte: 1st and 3rd Tuesday evenings 5 - 9 pm
Pacoima: 1st and 3rd Saturdays 9am - 1 pm
Volunteer advocates interview litigants, calculate their claims, draft demand letters and declarations, and help litigants prepare for their hearings.
We particularly need advocates that speak Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese, but non-Spanish speakers are encouraged to participate as well.
The volunteer will be responsible for developing factual and legal arguments, writing a brief, preparing the litigant for the hearing, and developing direct and cross examination questions.
Volunteers must commit to two clinics per month over a four month period.
