    ¿Ud. piensa que su patrón le paga menos que el salario mínimo? Piensa que no recibe el pago apropiado para horas extras (sobretiempo, o tiempo y medio - overtime en inglés)? ¡Venga a nuestro taller mensual para reclamos de salario!
    Cada tercer miércoles del mes, damos un día de consulta para reclamos de salario donde se puede hablar con un abogado de empleo gratuitamente. De allí le ayudamos a escribir una carta a su patrón, que demanda sus salarios debidos o perdidos. También le guiamos a presentar una queja formal por el Gabinete de Trabajo de Kentucky (Kentucky Labor Cabinet).

    Every third Wednesday of the month, we host a self-help wage claim clinic where workers can come and talk to an employment lawyer for free. We help workers write a demand letter to their boss, demanding their lost or owed wages. We also help workers file claims through the Kentucky Labor Cabinet.

    AG Jeff Sessions had announced on September 5, 2017 in a press conference that DACA had been rescinded. US Citizenship and Immigration Services had only accepted DACA initial cases on or before September 5, 2017. No initial DACA cases had been accepted afterwards. Those DACA cases that had been filed before that date will be adjudicated or were adjudicated on a case by case basis, just like previously. Anybody whose DACA expired between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 was able to file before October 5, 2017.
