Legal Aid at Work delivers on the promise of justice for low-income people. In California and nationwide, about 40 percent of all workers make less than $15 an hour.
We use four main strategies to enforce and strengthen workers’ rights:
Free Clinics and Helplines
Our Workers’ Rights Clinic, Workers’ Disability Law Clinic, Wage Claim Clinic and numerous helplines provide free direct, individualized help in person or by phone for people across California.
We bring class and individual actions, limited representations, and impact litigation. This work enforces and strengthens the civil and employment rights of low-wage workers in California and across the country.
We draft and promote laws, regulations, and policies to strengthen civil and workplace rights at the local, state, and federal level.
