The North Carolina Central University School of Law is inviting the public to a free forum this Saturday on workplace issues.

The event, called “Workplace Rights: Equal Opportunity is the Law,” will include representatives from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the State Employment Security Commission Agency.  The representatives will provide an overview of the laws enforced by the agencies and complaint processing procedures.  A panel of plaintiff attorneys will be available to answer questions.

The forum will use the law school’s Technology Assisted Legal Instruction and Services (TALIAS) program. TALIAS allows people across the state to participate through HD video teleconferencing. NCCU has established sites at four universities: Elizabeth City State University, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina A&T University, and Winston-Salem State University. All four will participate in Saturday’s event.

The forum is from 10 a.m. to noon at the Turner Law Building. To register to attend at any location, contact Michelle S. Roberts at 919-530-6601 or at
