Employment Law

The Employment Law Unit represents low-wage and immigrant workers who have been unfairly denied unemployment insurance, have had back wages illegally withheld, have been denied employer insurance or pension benefits, or have been unfairly denied Family and Medical Leave Act benefits. Volunteer attorneys, working with an experienced employment law legal team, will have the opportunity to handle individual cases before the Unemployment Insurance Board and represent clients in State and federal actions. Depending upon the case, participating attorneys may be involved with fact development, research, discovery, motion practice, negotiations, witness preparation, oral argument, and administrative or trial advocacy.
