What We Do

Legal Services for Worker Center Members

legalJustice At Work provides training, education, advice, referrals and direct representation for workers and staff of immigrant worker centers. Workers contact immigrant worker centers daily with cases of wage theft, workplace accidents, discrimination, sexual harassment, illegal retaliation and other work-related abuses. Justice At Work trains the staff and workers of the worker centers on workplace rights and, when necessary, performs legal in-takes with workers. When a legal claim exists, Justice At Work provides a variety of services depending on the workers’ interests. We help workers file complaints with government agencies, such as the Department of Labor or Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination. We also help workers find a workers’ compensation or discrimination attorney. Or, when appropriate, we represent workers directly.
