Mid-Level Attorney Opportunity at Towards Justice
Towards Justice seeks a mid-level attorney to join our team in Denver and expand our capacity to empower low-wage workers to navigate rapidly changing employment relationships, avoid forced arbitration, combat collusion, escape forced labor, and recover stolen wages. The successful candidate will have experience in complex litigation efforts and can expect to engage in fact investigations, spot issues, develop creative legal strategies, and manage positive client and co-counsel relationships. The ideal candidate would have three to seven years of experience litigating complex civil actions in federal court, a passion for serving low-wage and immigrant workers, the ability to work independently, and the ability to think strategically and creatively about law and policy. Spanish language capacity and experience working with marginalized communities are preferred.
Towards Justice invites You to Just Wages!
Come hang with us to celebrate a year of victories for workers who continue to fight for more power and fairer treatment, even in the face of tremendous fear.

Worker Roundtable on Colorado Minimum Wage Order
Join workers, advocates, and community members for a night of discussion and story sharing as we encourage the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment to edit and improve the Wage Order and protect all Colorado workers.
Today in Colorado, many workers can go entire workdays without being guaranteed a legal break. Managers in all industries can legally be worked well over 60-70 hours a week without being paid overtime. Depending on what industry you work in, some workers like agriculture workers on small farms, are not entitled to receive the state minimum wage.
Right now, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) is considering changes to the Colorado Minimum Wage Order (“Wage Order”) that could address many of the gaps in worker protections. We believe ALL workers like construction, agriculture, and managers in fast-food restaurants, retail stores, and non-profits deserve workplace protections.
Food and childcare will be provided.
