The Workplace Project Honors Workers' Compensation Attorneys Turley, Redmond & RosascoThursday, November 3, 2005
The Workplace Project, the trail blazing immigrant rights organization on Long Island, will be honoring Turley, Redmond & Rosasco, LLP at it’s 13th Anniversary Gala on Wednesday, November 9, 2005 at the Fox Hollow Inn.
The attorneys at Turley, Redmond & Rosasco have worked cooperatively with the Workplace Project for over 10 years to improve working conditions for Latino immigrants in New York. As detailed in Workplace Project founder Jennifer Gordon’s recent book, Suburban Sweatshops, the New York economy thrives on the backs of immigrant workers who work in the type of deplorable working conditions not seen since the times of Dickens. It has been our honor to help these individuals receive workers’ compensation benefits when they are seriously injured on the job. It is sad to report that the majority of workers’ compensation death cases I see in my office today involve immigrant workers who are doing jobs that few American born workers would even consider. Far and away, it is these immigrant workers who come to my office in wheelchairs and missing limbs.
The Workplace Project serves a vital role in protecting the human dignity of immigrant workers in New York and Long Island. Many elected officials and friends of this fine organization will be on hand for this Gala on November 9th. Sponorships, journal ads and tickets are available by calling Executive Director Nadia Marin-Molina at (516) 565-5377. Many of the Turley, Redmond & Rosasco attorneys and staff will be present along with frinds of our law firm. Please join us on November 9th to support The Workplace Project. We look forward to seeing you there.
