Job Description

Bilingual Outreach Workers (Dayton)

Each year more than 30,000 farm workers and family members work in Ohio in agricultural labor. They work in many hand-harvest crops, including cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuces, onions, radishes, and peppers. They also work in various packing sheds, grading stations, and food processing plants. Advocates for Basic Legal Equality, Inc. (ABLE), a non-profit law firm, is hiring two Outreach Workers to assist the attorneys and staff in its Dayton office to extend legal services to these workers and their families throughout Ohio. Equal opportunity employer.

Many agricultural workers encounter legal problems arising from violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Migrant and Seasonal Agricultural Worker Protection Act, and other federal and state protective statutes, as well as problems with tax, immigration, environmental hazards, sexual harassment, government benefits, housing, domestic violence, civil rights, ethnic profiling by law enforcement, education, and other issues.

The primary responsibility of the Outreach Worker is going to agricultural labor camps in Ohio, usually in the early evening, and informing workers about our services and workers' rights. Additional duties include community legal education, investigation and research, and other work assigned by ABLE attorneys. This is a part-time, temporary position from May 2018 through October 2018, located in ABLE's Dayton office. Pay is $15 per hour, at least 10 hours per week, with some weeks requiring additional hours. ABLE generally will have a car available for outreach, but you must have a valid driver's license and be insurable.

We are looking for persons committed to social justice for farm workers and immigrants, fluent in Spanish, have excellent organizational and writing skills, an ability to relate well with low-income clients and community groups, computer proficiency, and a strong commitment to the rule of law. Evening and weekend work and travel required.
