Women’s Legal Action Project

 Women’s Employment Workshops

In order to better meet the needs of our female clients, we have added a special employment workshop, facilitated by Kamilah Wallace, Sr. Service Coordinator, for women. This is a 2 hour workshop.

Did you know that your employment rights are protected by New York State law? Attend this workshop to obtain tips and information on applying for jobs when you have a criminal record (employee rights, how to understand your criminal record, job application, fields of work, etc.). We will also discuss Certificates of Relief/Good Conduct and provide information and referrals for online job-search help, résumé services, and legal assistance for employment discrimination issues. A 58-page ex-offender employment manual written by JPC staff is available free of charge.

Women interested in applying to this program must have a cumulative total of 2 years work experience. Call and make a reservation by talking to the receptionist or Kamilah Wallace at 325-7727.

Women’s Workshop, Wednesdays – 2 hours, from 10 AM until noon, refreshments provided.
