Sacramento Workers’ Rights Clinic Opens

On June 2nd, the Center for Workers’ Rights and the Legal Aid Society – Employment Law Center added Sacramento as a new Workers’ Rights Clinic site, allowing greater numbers of low-wage workers in California to get free help with urgent workplace problems. The Sacramento site is staffed by law student counselors from McGeorge Law School who will be supervised by attorneys from the Center, LAS-ELC and by experienced volunteer attorneys from the plaintiffs’ employment bar.

LAS-ELC and the Center for Workers’ Right teach student volunteers California employment law, in addition to providing skills training on key advocacy tactics.
