Through its Saturday Lawyer Program, AVLF provides free legal representation to eligible workers with a claim for unpaid wages against an employer. The most common cases we handle involve employers who:

  • Refuse to give an employee his or her last paycheck
  • Refuse to pay anything at all 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 household income at or below 200% of the federal poverty level
