Workers’ Rights Clinic Opened in Orange County
The Legal Aid Society-Employment Law Center has added Orange County to the list of its Workers’ Rights Clinic sites. The Orange County Workers’ Rights Clinic is a collaboration of Legal Aid, the Legal Aid Society of Orange County (LASOC) and UC Irvine School of Law. The Orange County Clinic is housed at LASOC and is staffed by students from UC Irvine School of Law, attorneys from Legal Aid, and volunteer attorneys from the local bar. Initially operating every other Tuesday during the law semester, the Clinic will provide free legal services to low-wage workers, including service industry workers, in Orange County who face a range of workplace problems including unpaid wages and overtime, health and safety violations and discrimination.
