Know the Law Before It Knows You

Wednesday, June 19, 2013, 6:30 p.m.

Join the Southwest Public Library for the first in a series of Legal Literacy Seminars, "Your Rights At Your First Job."

Adam Marker, a practicing employment lawyer, is going to talk to teens about what to expect in their first job, and how best to address any conflicts that might arise.

Teens in the District will be starting their summer jobs soon and this will be a great opportunity for them to learn their rights on the job. This talk is directed at teens and new workers, but all are invited to attend and participate.

In addition to discussing one’s rights at work, Mr. Marker is going to discuss the general structure of our legal system and ways for individuals to obtain legal information on their own.
