Hernaldo Baltodano to Address School District Parents & Students: Know Your Rights

On February 16, 2017, Hernaldo J. Baltodano will be part of a panel of attorneys and others who will address parents and students in the San Luis Coastal Unified School District (SLCUSD) about their rights as employees and immigrants.  The panel, organized by the principal of Pacheco Elementary School and open to all SLCUSD families, will include representatives from the Mexican Consulate’s office, U.S. Congressman Salud Carbajal’s office, and immigration attorneys familiar with up-to-date changes in U.S. immigration policy.  Mr. Baltodano will specifically address workplace issues related to documented and undocumented employees.  Click here for more information in English and Spanish.

In December 2016, San Luis Coastal Unified School District adopted a School District Safe Zone resolution to reassure school children and their families that our public schools are safe places where they will not be questioned regarding their immigration status and where they can obtain information or assistance if faced with fears or anxiety related to immigration enforcement efforts.  The February 16 “Know Your Rights” workshop is consistent with the school district’s Safe Zone resolution.

Immigrant families are feeling anxious right now and it is important for them to know their legal rights in the workplace– rights that apply regardless of their immigration status– as well as their rights as documented or undocumented immigrants. “Baltodano & Baltodano LLP is honored to play to a role in this educational workshop for families who are feeling particularly vulnerable at this time,” said Erica Flores Baltodano who coordinates the firm’s strong commitment to education, civic service, and charitable giving.

Hundreds of families are expected to attend the school district event on February 16, 2017.
