La Raza Centro Legal is a longtime friend of Boxer & Gerson, LLP. The San Francisco-based nonprofit organization has been dedicated to protecting the rights of Latino, immigrant and low-income individuals in employment, housing, residency status and many other areas since its founding in 1973. Given the commonality of values and concern for oppressed populations, Boxer & Gerson has maintained a longstanding commitment to assisting the organization in any way it can.
On June 6, that commitment manifested in Boxer & Gerson Partner Maria Sager making a presentation to the La Raza Centro Legal staff on workers’ compensation law. The two organizations’ ties will be renewed again on June 16 when Boxer & Gerson sponsors Centro Legal’s 44th Anniversary Gala. The events stand as bookends, in significant ways, to a relationship that has been dedicated to advancing the common good in the Bay Area for many years.
Sager’s June 6 presentation focused on an overview of workers’ compensation law and a review of its benefits, settlements, penalties and civil considerations. The subject is especially relevant to La Raza Centro Legal and its clients, given that immigrant workers can present inviting targets for certain unscrupulous employers who would deny them adequate recourse after they have been injured on the job.
