Worker Support: Hotline, Legal Clinic, and Online Inquiry form!

Our legal rights as workers are complicated, and understanding how to respond to violations can be challenging. The Southern Maine Workers’ Center can provide support to help you understand your rights, and take action steps to resolve the problem. We can also refer you to legal advice, when necessary.

While it is important to win individual legal victories, we recognize that often when we ourselves are facing an injustice at work, so too are our coworkers. When we take action together we can improve conditions for everyone. The Workers’ Center can help you and your coworkers organize to address grievances in the workplace.

Check out the resources below to find out how!
