NLG-NYC Labor & Employment: Know Your Rights Cards Now Available!

By Chapter Coordinator, August 7, 2015 1:39 pm

With financial support from the NLG Foundation and much hard work, the NYC-NLG Labor & Employment Committee’s Know Your Rights: A 2015 Guide for Workers in New York City palm cards are finally here.

The cards, in Spanish and English, provide information regarding various local, employment-related rights, including rights to minimum wage, overtime, paid and unpaid leave, and to organize, among others.  The Committee partnered with MFY Legal Services, Inc., which will be distributing half of the cards we have printed to workers and clients.  The Committee will be working with local advocacy groups to develop a distribution plan for the remainder of the cards, and for future printed editions.

The cards are available for download here, and there are printing/folding instructions available here.  Feel free to print and disseminate among workers and advocates.

Thank You For Another Wonderful Spring Fling!

Thanks to everyone who participated in making Spring Fling 2015 a success!

If you took out an ad, bought tickets or sponsored the event, thank you! Your support ensured the event’s success, as a fundraiser and a celebration of the amazing work of our members.

It was a wonderful evening. We had a great turnout, with many familiar faces, and some fresh new ones. The honoree speeches were very moving, and the crowd warm and engaged.

For those who could not attend and would like to view the dinner journal, you can find a link to it here.
