Working to secure, protect and promote workplace justice in the D.C. metro area.
Click here to sign up for the D.C. Labor Walking Tour on Saturday, May 16!
The EJC’s free, walk-in Workers’ Rights Clinics in NW and SE D.C. provide needed legal advice and brief services to low-wage workers who are victims of wage theft, discrimination, and other abuses.
Volunteers find meaningful work in all of the EJC’s programs – including serving low-wage workers at our free, walk-in Workers’ Rights Clinics; assisting workers and community allies on our issue campaigns, and supporting worker activists at community rallies and actions.
The EJC is a leading force on the wage theft campaign, advocating for more effective administrative processes and greater rights for workers as they fight to recover unpaid wages, as well as greater penalties for employers that commit wage theft — and publicly calling out bad actor employers for not paying their workers what they’re owed.
"Mariana" got a job at her friend's business but still ended up facing Wage Theft. Fortunately, with her own courage and a little help from the worker's committee, she was able to recover her lost wages.
