Wage Claim Clinic


Know Your Rights

If you think your boss has been paying you less than minimum wage or has not paid you for overtime hours, 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 and either write a demand letter to their boss, demanding their lost or owed wages, or receive guidance with the process of filing a claim through the Kentucky Labor Cabinet. Our next clinic will take place in Lexington April 19 from 4 to 7 p.m.

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 800-699-0805.
