Fair Work Center seeks dynamic and creative staff attorney candidates dedicated to advancing the rights of low-wage, immigrant, and contingent workers.
The Staff Attorney will support our organization’s efforts to ensure that workers know their rights under local, state, and federal law and that employers are held accountable to labor standards. They will use a variety of legal strategies to advance the rights of low-wage workers, including individual advice and representation, strategic litigation, research, and policy advocacy. We are looking for an attorney committed to using their legal training to build the power of Washington’s working people. This position will report to the Legal Director.
Working Washington and Fair Work Center joined forces in 2018–bringing together two organizations with a track record of significant victories for workers. Together, we fight for new rights and make those rights real through community-based education and legal services, all while building a powerful movement of working people. We have emerged as a national leader in organizing workers in several different industries. In 2019, we passed health and safety protections for strippers in Washington State. We are a national leader in organizing delivery workers in the gig economy, leading to Instacart, DoorDash, and Amazon changing their tipping policies. We led the campaign to expand Washington’s overtime protections to be the best in the country and continue to organize domestic workers to enforce Seattle’s Domestic Worker Ordinance – the first city-level bill of rights in the country.
Salary range: $65,000 – $75,000, commensurate with experience.
