Workers’ Rights Clinics training

Join the IRC on Saturday, November 7 for a training with the Employment Justice Center (EJC) to prepare volunteers for their Workers’ Rights Clinics. Volunteers should be able to commit to 1 clinic per month. Spanish and Amharic-speakers needed, but there is no language requirement.

This training will prepare volunteers for any of EJC’s 3 Workers’ Rights Clinics: every Wednesday from 6-9pm at Bread For the City’s NW office, and every other Friday (12-4pm) and Saturday (10am-1pm).

Volunteers will conduct legal intake with low-income workers to assess their eligibility to make workers’ compensation and other employment claims. This is a great opportunity to get hands-on legal experience working with clients and seasoned employment attorneys, give back to the low-income immigrant community, and gain hours toward your Pro Bono Pledge.
