Famighetti & Weinick, PLLC, employment lawyers on Long Island launched a Spanish version of the law firm's website to provide Long Island's Spanish speaking community with information about workplace issues.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Long Island employment lawyers of Famighetti & Weinick, PLLC launched a Spanish version of the firm's website. The website, available at http://abogadodeempleony.com, provides information about workplace rights issues such as discrimination, retaliation, and unpaid wages and overtime.
Matthew Weinick, a partner of the firm, says the Spanish employment law website was created to give Long Island's Spanish community access to information about workplace laws. "Unfortunately, Long Island's Spanish speaking community is often taken advantage of by employers." Weinick added that the firm often meets Spanish speaking clients who have not been paid properly by their employers. "Many Spanish speaking clients working minimum wage jobs are frequently forced to work many hours over 40 each week, but aren't paid overtime wages required by Federal and State laws," noted Weinick.
Partner, Peter J. Famighetti, added "We find that workers who come from other countries don't understand their rights in the workplace, and on Long Island, those workers usually speak Spanish." Famighetti said he hopes the firm's new Spanish website will help this vulnerable segment of the population learn that they have the right to earn minimum wage and overtime for their work in New York.
The partners said that the Spanish website was translated from their English website, http://linycemploymentlaw.com, by a professional translator and built from the ground up by the firm's internet team. Weinick stated, "Many Spanish websites are translated by computer program, but we wanted our website to read naturally and correctly." For website visitors seeking more information than is available on the website or for those seeking legal help, the firm has established a Spanish speaking extension on its telephone system, accessible to callers from the main menu.
