The CHW Program at Northwest Vista College invites you to attend this important training.
CHW Competencies: Advocacy and Capacity Building.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division protects the workplace rights of essential workers who are keeping our country moving forward during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Workers in grocery stores, health care, delivery services, retail establishments, agriculture, and other essential industries have remained on the job despite many potential risks to their own health or that of their families. The Wage and Hour Division is committed to ensuring that these, and all workers, receive the workplace protections provided under the law.
Rapid changes in the workplace have surfaced many questions for workers, their advocates, and employers about wages, hours worked, and time off for workers or their family members dealing with serious illness. The Fair Labor Standards Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act provide protections for workers that may be more crucial now than ever before.
In efforts to provide community health workers and advocates with information and tools to help inform and connect workers with these valuable resources, the Community Health Worker Program at Northwest Vista College invites you to attend this critical training offered by The U.S. Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division.
