AVLF provides FREE legal representation to fight employers who don’t pay you for work you performed. 

The most common cases we handle involve employers who:

  • Refuse to give an employer their last check
  • Refuse to pay anything for work performed
  • Skipped paychecks
  • Failed to pay minimum wage or overtime

Not all employment cases are appropriate for our program. We do not assist with cases involving:

  • Only vacation, sick, or holiday pay
  • Bonuses or commissions
  • Employment discrimination
  • Workers’ compensation 
  • Unemployment insurance
  • Pensions
  • Claims of wrongful termination

Who We Assist

To qualify, workers must:

  • Live in or have a case in Fulton County or Clayton County
  • Have a low income. We help households with income at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. If you are not sure you meet our criteria, please call so we can help you or direct you to the resources you need.
