领先的法律非营利组织纽约法律援助集团(NYLAG)今天宣布,全球律师事务所Shearman&Sterling正在帮助扩大其 NY COVID-19法律资源热线。鉴于COVID-19对有色语言社区和具有多种语言需求的移民社区的影响不成比例,谢尔曼和斯特林将借助其国际员工队伍来提高语言能力,以帮助翻译成NYLAG的西班牙语,俄语和普通话客户。

“虽然这场危机影响了所有人,但我们的客户(无论是贫穷还是低收入的客户)都受到独特的影响。由于经济不景气,许多人失去了工作,担心住房问题,还面临着无数其他危机。其他人从事必不可少的低薪工作,因此有可能接触到COVID-19。无证移民已被拒之门外。我们的社区需要专业的法律帮助,以了解和维护自己的权利,并了解他们在法律上受到的保护。我们非常感谢Shearman&Sterling加入我们,向最需要但又负担不起的纽约人提供免费的法律专业知识,”纽约州立法律咨询学院总裁兼代理律师Beth Goldman说。

“随着大流行继续给世界各地的人们带来困难,特别是在纽约等人口稠密的城市,Shearman&Sterling提供了无偿法律资源,并为最需要它的人提供支持。不足为奇的是,低收入人士受到当前危机的严重影响,我们很荣幸与纽约法律援助组织(New York Legal Assistance Group)等组织合作,为客户提供维持生计所需的重要法律咨询,” Pro Saralyn Cohen说道。 Bono律师兼Shearman&Sterling董事。

那些因冠状病毒而需要免费法律支持的人可以在美国东部时间周一至周五上午7点至下午1点致电929-356-9582的NY COVID-19法律资源热线。个人还可以通过填写NYLAG的在线表格随时联系热线。无论哪种方式,NYLAG和Shearman&Sterling的律师都会在两个工作日内回电。

NYLAG的COVID-19热线可以提供以下建议:

  • 高级计划(备用监护,授权委托书,医疗保健代理,遗嘱)
  • 消费者债务(债务追收,工资补给)
  • 员工权利(带薪休假,FMLA,工作条件)
  • 房屋(驱逐,租金拖欠,丧失抵押品赎回权,抵押救济选项)
  • 失业救济金
  • 公共利益
  • 特殊教育问题(K-12)
