“Know your rights” videos in American Sign Language

American Sign Language

Legal Aid Society–Employment Law Center is proud to announce the launch of six innovative “know your rights” videos in American Sign Language (ASL) with English captioning. The informational videos, the first of their kind in the nation, provide critical legal information in a format accessible to deaf and hard of hearing workers.

The videos feature deaf interpreters explaining concepts relevant to workers who are deaf or hard of hearing, including: discrimination, reasonable accommodation, unemployment insurance, temporary disability benefits, and leaves of absence. Two of the videos are geared specifically toward survivors of domestic violence, sexual harassment, and stalking.

These videos are the first installation in what we hope will be an ongoing series. LAS–ELC would like to extend our thanks to the production team from Sweetwater Media, a media company in San Francisco, and to Verizon for partially funding the videos.
