領先的法律非營利組織紐約法律援助集團(NYLAG)今天宣布,全球律師事務所Shearman&Sterling正在幫助擴大其 NY COVID-19法律資源熱線。鑑於COVID-19對有色語言社區和具有多種語言需求的移民社區的影響不成比例,謝爾曼和斯特林將藉助其國際員工隊伍來提高語言能力,以幫助翻譯成NYLAG的西班牙語,俄語和普通話客戶。

“雖然這場危機影響了所有人,但我們的客戶(無論是貧窮還是低收入的客戶)都受到獨特的影響。由於經濟不景氣,許多人失去了工作,擔心住房問題,還面臨著無數其他危機。其他人從事必不可少的低薪工作,因此有可能接觸到COVID-19。無證移民已被拒之門外。我們的社區需要專業的法律幫助,以了解和維護自己的權利,並了解他們在法律上受到的保護。我們非常感謝Shearman&Sterling加入我們,向最需要但又負擔不起的紐約人提供免費的法律專業知識,” NYLAG總裁兼代理律師Beth Goldman說。

“隨著大流行繼續給世界各地的人們帶來困難,特別是在紐約等人口稠密的城市,Shearman&Sterling提供了無償法律資源,並為最需要它的人提供支持。不足為奇的是,低收入人士受到當前危機的嚴重影響,我們很榮幸與紐約法律援助組織(New York Legal Assistance Group)等組織合作,為客戶提供維持生計所需的重要法律諮詢,” Pro Saralyn Cohen說道。 Bono律師兼Shearman&Sterling董事。

那些因冠狀病毒而需要免費法律支持的人可以在美國東部時間週一至週五上午7點至下午1點致電929-356-9582的NY COVID-19法律資源熱線。個人還可以通過填寫NYLAG的在線表格隨時聯繫熱線。無論哪種方式,NYLAG和Shearman&Sterling的律師都會在兩個工作日內回電。

NYLAG的COVID-19熱線可以提供以下建議:

  • 高級計劃(備用監護,授權委託書,醫療保健代理,遺囑)
  • 消費者債務(債務追收,工資補給)
  • 員工權利(帶薪休假,FMLA,工作條件)
  • 房屋(驅逐,租金拖欠,喪失抵押品贖回權,抵押救濟選項)
  • 失業救濟金
  • 公共利益
  • 特殊教育問題(K-12)
  • 刺激支付問題
