Clinics and helplines

Our clinics

The Workers’ Rights Clinic provides low-income and unemployed people with confidential information about their legal rights related to work. We provide services in Spanish, Mandarin, and Cantonese, and we can accommodate other languages.

Before you call: answers to common questions

Our other clinics can help you file a claim for unpaid wages or give you information about disability access and rights.

Our helplines

Call our specialized helplines for information on work and family; disability or language rights; or racial equality in the workplace; or girls in sports.
