Employment / Unemployment
JALA’s Employment Law Project
JALA promotes the stability of low wage and disadvantaged workers and their families by advocating for workplace rights, job preservation and the means to overcome barriers to employment. The ability of community members to earn a living is a critical component of the economic development and quality of life of any community. Through legal advice, representation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the Employment Law Project helps workers be productive, self-sufficient members of the community and guards against workplace abuses.
