The Commission developed adult literacy courses for ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes entitled The Right To Work: Understanding Immigrant Employment Rights. The lessons teach adult literacy students using a manual with interactive DVD’s.
The classes cover:
• Overview of NYC’s Human Rights Law
• Workers’ Rights
• Protecting Against Immigrant Fraud
The Commission delivers these lessons during scheduled ESOL classes at public libraries, community colleges, and back-to-work agencies. The classes provide practical work-related information while furthering the adult student’s literacy goals.
