Wage Claim Clinic


Know Your Rights

Has your boss been paying you less than the minimum wage? Do you think you're not getting paid for working overtime? Come to our monthly wage claim clinic!

Every third Wednesday of the month, we host a self-help wage claim clinic where workers can come and talk to an employment lawyer for free. We help workers write a demand letter to their boss, demanding their lost or owed wages. We also help workers file claims through the Kentucky Labor Cabinet.

Our next clinic will take place in Lexington November 21 from 4 to 7 p.m. Please call 859-667-4559 to make an appointment!

In addition to the monthly clinics, our workers' rights team partners with other organizations to help spread the word about employment issues in the immigrant communities of Lexington, Louisville, and surrounding areas. We regularly attend community events and give bilingual presentations on basic rights in the workplace and on what to do if those rights have been violated. If you are interested in having us come speak to your community, give our Outreach Coordinator, Miranda Brown, a call at 859-667-4559.
