Rebecca Kagin, who co-chairs California Employment Lawyer’s Association’s Immigrant Employee Rights Committee, designed and moderated the continuing legal education seminar “Advocating for Our Essential Workforce During the Pandemic” on August 11, 2021. Speakers addressed how to protect our essential workforce during the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, with a special focus on the rights of immigrant workers. The seminar covered job protected leave, wage replacement for those impacted by Covid-19 and related issues, protections against discrimination and retaliation based on Covid-19 and related issues, and issues related to employer mandates of the Covid-19 vaccine. As a rising leader within CELA, Ms. Kagin collaborated with IERC committee members, her co-chair, and CELA’s staff to produce this CLE. As part of LVBH, Ms. Kagin represents immigrant and other workers in claims related to discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, and whistleblowing, among other issues.
