Workers’ Rights Clinic Launches New Site in Watsonville

On July 14th, LAS-ELC will add Watsonville to its roster of Workers’ Rights Clinic sites, allowing greater numbers of low-wage workers in California to get free help with urgent workplace problems. In partnership with the Watsonville Law Center (WLC) and the California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA), the Watsonville Clinic site will be staffed by law counselors from the WLC who are supervised by attorneys from LAS-ELC and by volunteer attorneys from CELA. The Watsonville Clinic site will assist workers from Santa Cruz, Watsonville, Salinas and the surrounding areas with a wide range of workplace problems, including unpaid wages and overtime, health and safety violations and discrimination.
