Using the law as a tool, the LAS-ELC helps workers attain financial security by preserving employment opportunities. We believe that stable working conditions and adequate income strengthen families and build communities. By protecting the legitimate employment status of wage earners, we provide families the means to pull through adverse times, avoid the downward spiral caused by job loss, and be fully contributing members of society. The Legal Aid Society - Employment Law Center works primarily in three areas to advance the workplace rights of low-income and minority workers. Litigation: The LAS-ELC's experienced staff attorneys litigate cases nationwide that we believe will reform laws and policy for the benefit of minority and low-income workers and their families. Cases address diverse employment issues, including race-, gender- and disability-based discrimination. Direct Services: We provide advice, counsel and advocacy to over 3,000 workers annually through our Bay Area Workers' Rights Clinics and numerous projects that include a direct services component. Through these projects, we conduct workshops, publish materials and provide technical assistance to disadvantaged workers and their advocates throughout the country. Legislative Advocacy: We promote worker-friendly public policy by drafting legislation and testifying before legislative bodies. Source: www.las-elc.org
