In the past year, workers and advocates in DC have won some of the strongest labor rights in the country. Now the Just Pay Coalition is launching a new website to help D.C. workers learn more about rights on the job. The website can be accessed at www.knowyourrightsdc.org in English and www.derechosdc.org in Spanish...
It includes detailed, easy-to-understand information on the new workers' rights laws and answers common questions like “Does my employer have to give me paid sick days when I miss work because I’m sick or have a doctors’ appointment?” “What is wage theft and how do I know if it is happening to me?” “What is the current minimum wage in D.C. and how will it go up in the future?” And “Can my employer ask me about my criminal record on a job application or in an interview?”
“Please share the website and the bilingual poster with your networks and with the community,” urges Employment Justice Organizer Emma Cleveland. If you use twitter, you can share one of these tweets: ¿Quiere conocer sus derechos en el trabajo?
