Workplace & Economic Justice

Everyone deserves access to good jobs and fair treatment at work. When employers break the law, we hold them accountable, providing free legal help and representation to workers who need it most, and taking on big cases that make workplaces fairer and safer for everyone. We also work with high-road employers to develop best practices, creating the standard for entire industries.

From sexual harassment in the janitorial industry, to pregnancy discrimination in retail, our lawyers have helped workers fight for gender equity and justice in the workplace for over 45 years. Because when women are economically secure, we live longer. We go back to school. We leverage our power as consumers. We vote and run for office. And we transform our communities, our industries, and our world.

Know Your Rights

If you’re being mistreated, paid unfairly, or harassed at work, knowing your rights can help you stand up for yourself and potentially help others, too. Whether you send an anonymous letter, file a complaint, or simply open a conversation at work, start with learning what your legal rights and options are.

Take action to support economic & workplace equality

Fighting for Workplace Justice & Economic Security

We don’t just enforce civil rights laws; we help pass them, too. Our initiatives for workplace justice and economic security fight for reforms to ensure every woman and family has the opportunity to thrive, at work and beyond. Joining forces with other advocacy and community organizations, we tackle the big issues that may start in the workplace, but have lasting consequences on our personal lives, our economic security, and our families. These innovative campaigns connect the dots between issues of workplace justice, child care, income support, livable wages, and family caregiving.
