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 (temporarily closed)
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 everyone is encouraged to apply.
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.
Below please find the links to our Volunteer Brochure, Frequently Asked Questions sheet and our Volunteer Application. Please complete the application and return to me along with your resume via e-mail, fax or mail. Once we have reviewed and accepted your application we can move forward.
