These positions are based in Kennewick, WA and Yakima, WA. These offices have historically had a strong focus on serving immigrant client communities in Eastern and Central WA, consisting largely of farmworkers and their families. Examples of recent and current work include class action litigation on behalf of H-2A farmworkers, raising federal anti-trafficking and state wage law claims; class actions to obtain the right to overtime pay for dairy workers; legislative advocacy to ban private, for-profit detention, including the Northwest Detention Center; supporting workers at fruit packing sheds in their efforts to gain union recognition; challenging county jails’ practices of collaborating with ICE; and advocating for regulations to protect residents of temporary farmworker housing from COVID-19.
Due to the pandemic, CLS staff have been working from home. Once it is safe to reopen the offices, this position may still do some work from home but this position will require some physical presence at the office, as well as an ability to attend required meetings at the office and in the community.
Investigate practices and laws identified by the communities we serve that affect their rights or benefits, perpetuate poverty and racism, or impact access to political power, and devise creative strategies for addressing these problems.

Bilingual skills are compensated at an additional $720 per year. We also offer a comprehensive compensation package with 15 paid holidays, between 15-21 paid vacation days, 12 sick days, and between 3-5 personal days each year, as well as paid parental and family medical leave benefits and a partially-paid sabbatical every 7 years.
