Workers' Rights

BWC Supports Workers Knowing their Rights

Our workers' rights project is BWC’s core program and is the foundation for all the initiatives, activities, educational sessions, and training that take place at BWC. In the last four years we have recouped approximately $ 3.5 million in restitution for workers, by direct mediation, through complaint referrals to state and federal labor authorities, or in small claims courts. We have weekly know your rights workshops at our office located at 14 Harvard Ave, 2nd Floor Allston. If you worked and didn't get paid, call us at 617-783-8001 or email us at
