A group of Irish legal practitioners have come together to offer a voluntary service for immigrant workers to combat a perceived lack of access to the legal system. The service will offer basic legal advice and representation. Work Fair will initially operate for a six-month pilot phase from January to June 2008 to assess demand and fine-tune service models.
What can WorkFair do for you?
WorkFair is a new labour rights initiative providing legal advice and representation to migrant workers in Ireland at risk of exploitation in the workplace.
You may be eligible if you have been:
• Dismissed unfairly from your work
• The victim of discrimination in your job
• Denied work/promotion on discriminatory grounds
• Bullied in the workplace
• Coerced by your employer in relation to work permits
• Denied written terms and conditions of employment
If you think you may eligible, please attend one of our drop-in clinics or contact us by email or telephone to arrange an appointment. Persons wishing to seek advice through English may attend on any of the dates. Persons with language needs other than those listed will need to contact us in advance to arrange an appointment. If at all possible, please fill out this brief form in advance of attending so that we can best advise you. All information will be treated confidentially.
