February 23, 2018 – This Monday, February 26th the Massachusetts Attorney General’s Office is running a free wage theft clinic to help out workers who feel they’ve been cheated in some way. Lawyers, community advocates, and law students alike will be available to answer questions you may have about your rights as an employee. They can even help you draft a demand letter and file a small claims complaint.
Interpreter services are available if you call ahead to (617) 963-2327, and they’re willing to help out anyone who comes, regardless of immigration status. You can read the announcement in English, Español, Português, 汉语/漢語, Tiếng Việt, af Soomaali, and العَرَبِيَّة.
When you go, try and bring along any potentially relevant documents including pay stubs, time sheets, and any correspondence with your employer – basically anything that could be helpful.
