Any worker with an employment related matter including unpaid wages, discrimination, family and medical leave act (FMLA) violations, unemployment compensation, workers' compensation, sexual harassment, barriers to employment, and sick leave violations should contact the Workers' Rights Clinic via phone at (202) 319-1000 or email at to schedule a telephonic legal intake appointment.
