Workers' Rights for ESOL Students

"The Boss Can't Do That, Can He?" Workers Rights Curriculum assumes some literacy in English. Since immigrants make up one of the main segments of our workforce who need to learn about their rights under US law, we encourage ESOL and ABE teachers to adapt our materials as necessary for use with limited English proficiency learners.

We would also appreciate getting copies of materials that have been adapted for ESOL or ABE use, so that we can publish them here on this website.
