Page Summary

This page describes the services that Legal Aid at Work offers through clinics that meet several times each week across California. There are clinics in eight cities that can help you address all kinds of workers' rights issues. There are clinics that will help you file or appeal a claim with the state Labor Commissioner's office in San Francisco and Oakland. And a clinic in Berkeley can help you assert the workplace rights of people with disabilities. The map shows the phone number to call for appointments at each location or to speak to a counselor on the phone. Details about each clinic are listed next. Finally, there is a table showing the maximum income of clients the clinic can accept, and then there's a video about what to expect during a clinic appointment.
