Come join us at the Farmworker Unit! We are hiring a litigation paralegal. The Farmworker Unit provides free legal assistance in civil matters to this population statewide. Its office is centrally located in Raleigh, but we regularly visit rural areas where farmworkers live and work, mostly in the evenings. The Unit’s litigation primarily involves employment law, utilizing state and federal laws regulating wages, working conditions, safety, and housing. We also assist survivors of trafficking with civil remedies and preparation of immigration petitions and other available relief. The Unit has four attorneys, a community education coordinator, and three paralegals. LANC is committed to high quality representation of farmworker clients and offers an opportunity to do challenging work with committed colleagues.
We are seeking a paralegal for the following responsibilities: Provide litigation support for cases as a part of a team with licensed attorneys; work independently while under attorney supervision to gather and synthesize documentary and testamentary proof for cases; maintain client communications, interview clients and witnesses, and update records in the office case management system. Lead an outreach team and conduct client education sessions. Limited evening or weekend work is required. Fluency in Spanish is required.
