Our office will have a booth for the first time this year at the Cinco de Mayo festival at Sunset Park on Sunday, May 2, 2010, from noon to 7 pm. I will brush up on my Spanish-speaking skills, and will have plenty of my Injured Workers’ Guide to Nevada Workers’ Compensation Law in Spanish to hand out. As even I would be bored by a purely educational booth hosted by a lawyer, I will have a teenage superstar weight lifter on hand to try to establish some new national records. Check out this link to Pat "Buff" Mendes latest amazing lift on You tube. We will also have some cool prizes to give away. Please stop by to meet me and my great staff!
Incidentally, I discovered that Division of Industrial Relations has designated April as Hispanic Safety Month. Free safety classes are offered in Spanish for Nevada’s Hispanic employees on how to remain safe in the workplace. DIR reports that in 2007, almost 30% of all non-fatal injuries involved Hispanic employees.
