About NELA

The National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA) is the country’s largest organization of lawyers who exclusively or primarily represent employees in cases involving employment discrimination, illegal workplace harassment, wrongful termination, denial of employee benefits, and other employment-related matters.

Founded in 1985, NELA and its 69 state and local Affiliates have more than 4,000 members nationwide. Thriving circuit, state, and local Affiliates across the country enable NELA to accomplish more for workers’ rights than we could alone.

Our Vision

  • Employees will be paid at least a living wage in an environment free of discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and capricious employment decisions;
  • Employers will fulfill their promises to provide retirement, health, and other benefits;
  • Employees’ safety and livelihood will not be compromised for the sake of corporate profit and interests;
  • Individuals will have effective legal representation to enforce their rights to a fair and just workplace, adequate remedies, and a right to trial by jury.

Advancing Equality & Justice

In advocating for employee rights, NELA participates as amicus curiae to provide our unique perspective in significant employment cases. We have created a strong and respected Amicus Program—since 1985, we have written or signed on to more than 250 amicus briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Circuit Courts of Appeals, U.S. District Courts, state courts, and before government agencies.

NELA is at the forefront of efforts to advance equality and justice in the American workplace through federal legislation and public policy. NELA lobbies and provides technical assistance to Congress on scores of federal legislation that bring us closer to achieving our mission.

NELA advocates for independent and fair-minded federal judges who are committed to equal justice under law for all of America’s workers, and who do not place the interests of employers over the rights of employees.

Serving Employee Rights Advocates

In carrying out our mission to serve lawyers who advocate for equality and justice in the American workplace, NELA provides exceptional opportunities for professional development through networking, educational programs, publications, and technical support. Learn more about membership in NELA.

The Employee Rights Advocacy Institute For Law & Policy

The Employee Rights Advocacy Institute For Law & Policy (The Institute) is NELA’s related charitable public interest organization. Founded in 2008, The Institute is NELA’s indispensible partner in achieving our shared mission of advocating for employee rights and advancing equality and justice in the American workplace. We encourage you to visit The Institute's website to learn more.

Advocating For Employee Rights: Twenty-Five Years And Counting

In 2010, NELA celebrated twenty-five years of advocating for employee rights. NELA and its members have indeed transformed the American workplace by protecting and expanding the rights of workers.
