Financial & Rental Assistance for Santa Clara County Residents Impacted by the COVID-19 Pandemic

Need Help Paying Rent?

I have great information to share with you. If you are a low-income Santa Clara County resident who has been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. If you say yes to all questions then you may qualify to receive help paying rent. DCARA is working with the Santa Clara County Homelessness Prevention System, which is focused on assisting the community’s lowest-income residents.

If you need assistance in paying past rent due contact DCARA for specific eligibility criteria, information on how to apply, and to get help filling out the applications.

Worker Retaliation Protections During COVID-19 Pandemic

[VISUAL DESC: Byung, a Korean American man wearing the charcoal shirt with DCARA logo on the left chest in front of a green background and sitting on a chair.]

[BEGIN TRANSCRIPT]

Workers are protected by California’s worker laws.

What is worker retaliation?

If you are fired, or your pay or work hours are reduced for using your labor rights under California’s laws, that is retaliation, and it is illegal. It’s also illegal for your employer to threaten to report you to immigration authorities for following California laws. All workers in California are protected by labor laws, including retaliation protections, regardless of immigration status. These continue to be your rights and protections during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Activities that are protected from retaliation under California law include:

• Speaking up about unsafe conditions or unpaid wages
• Refusing to work in unsafe conditions
• Reporting an unsafe workplace or labor violation
• Filing a wage claim for unpaid wages
• Assisting in an investigation of your Employer
