Justice at Work is a multilingual legal nonprofit founded solely to support organizations of workers in low-paying jobs. We envision a future in which all people can realize their voice and power on the job to ensure fair pay, safety, and dignity.
Legal Services to Build Worker Power
With resources and support, workers are their own best advocates. Justice at Work’s role is to support them. Our staff offer direct legal services and help ensure access to justice for worker center members; train workers and organizers on their workplace rights and ways to assert them; and provide ongoing legal counsel to groups of workers organizing for better conditions.
“When we bring Justice at Work’s legal services together with our community’s organizing efforts, workers not only recover stolen wages, but reclaim their humanity and self-worth.”
Lenita Reason, Executive Director, Brazilian Worker Center
How We Make Change
Justice at Work leverages the law and the resources of the legal community to help workers seek justice and make structural change. Since our founding in 2011, we have served more than 20 grassroots worker organizations and provided legal services to more than 2200 workers, helping recover more than $11.2 million on their behalf. Annually, we train an average of over 150 workers and organizers.
