POSTED: 07/26/11 11:54 AM

St. Maarten – Labor issues are the focus of the first “Know Your Rights” information session that the Philipsburg Jubilee Library has organized. The session, which will be held at the library on Thursday between 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., is the first in a five part series.

The panel for Thursday’s session includes a lawyer who specializes in work and residence permits, a union representative and a representative of the Department of Labor

“We have recently seen many issues arising in the community concerning labor laws and the rights of workers. The library found it highly important to bring in knowledgeable persons to speak on these issues and inform workers about their rights and some of the laws that are in place to help them,” the library’s Public Relations Officer Maryland Powell wrote in a statement.
