Workers Rights Clinic

The El Centro Workers' Rights Clinic is partnered with the Bet Tzedek Employment Rights Project and provides clinic volunteers an opportunity to become acquainted with California employment and wage law. Volunteers assist Bet Tzedek attorneys with representing workers in conjunction with community services providers and workers centers in Los Angeles. Clinics are held every month on the first Wednesday, 4:30pm - 8:30pm, at Bet Tzedek's Koreatown office, and additional opportunities to assist will be presented over the course of the semester. At the monthly clinic, volunteers conduct intake interviews of clients seeking pro bono legal aid for wage theft and other California wage and hourly law violations. Volunteers will gain experience working directly with supervising attorneys and discussing how California law applies to the clients' unique circumstances. Additional opportunities outside of the clinics may include intakes, discussions with Bet Tzedek attorneys, and any further actions the attorneys think necessary for the client. The clinic has a substantial need for Spanish speaking volunteers, but proficiency in Spanish is not required.
