Overview

What is the EJC?

The EJC is a non-profit law firm and employment justice organization which empowers low-income families, workers, and communities to achieve fair treatment in the workplace and in the justice system – regardless of immigration status.  We provide legal representation that enables working men and women to recover unpaid wages and combat other basic injustices they encounter in their work.  We work for systemic reforms that strengthen employment rights and expand access to the justice system for all working people. We protect and lift up the labor and human rights of both U.S.-born workers and transnational workers in our new global labor market.  We are helping develop and train the next generation of employment rights advocates – workers, students, lawyers, and community members.
