The Employment Law Hotline attorney will not represent you and will not review or draft any documents for you. The attorney may suggest self-help measures you can take. You may be referred to a social service or governmental agency for assistance.
Callers with viable cases may be referred to the Women’s Law Center’s employment law attorney referral panel. Additionally, you may be referred to a lawyer referral program that may be able to find you an attorney who will charge low or moderate fees.
The Employment Law Hotline answers questions from women and men about a wide range of employment law issues. However, the Women’s Law Center is especially interested in helping callers with problems that predominately impact women.
