Thursday, January 27, firm Partner David Klein and chief paralegal Elizabeth Rios teamed up with La Colmena – Community Job Center and TakeRoot Justice to teach a livestream class about workers’ compensation, personal injury and wage theft for day laborers.
“What we’re going to do tonight is just take a short time to give you a class in how to protect yourself if, God forbid, you get hurt on the job. How are you going to pay the rent, how are you going to pay your medical bills, how are you going to get over your pain and suffering? We’re going to teach you some very important points tonight.” -David Klein
During the hour-long course, David and Elizabeth presented in English and Spanish about workers’ compensation law, wage theft and ways for workers to protect their rights. You can view the class for free on Facebook Live.
Our firm has led many classes and seminars about workplace safety and workers’ legal rights, both on- and offline. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, David and Elizabeth taught similar classes for day labor centers, unions and construction workers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, they have offered several online classes in partnership with organizations including Radio Jornalera,, SEIU 1199 and TakeRoot Justice.
