Our Public Interest Committee (PIC) oversees Outten & Golden's work on public interest employment-related cases on behalf of low-income clients who cannot afford a lawyer. O&G has co-counseled cases with the ACLU Women's Rights Project, the NYCLU Reproductive Rights Project, the NYU Immigrant Rights Clinic, the National Employment Lawyers Project, the Legal Aid Society of New York, MFY Legal Services, the Sex Workers Project at the Urban Justice Center, South Brooklyn Legal Services, the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund, the MinKwon Center for Community Action, Make the Road New York, and HIV Law Project, among other organizations.

We represent pro bono clients for free or on a contingency basis as appropriate.

As examples of our pro bono matters, we have represented:
•A group of workers who spent months after the 9/11 attacks cleaning offices, apartments and stores near Ground Zero but were not paid proper overtime wages.
•Four low-wage factory workers whose supervisor persistently sexually harassed them.
•A cleaning woman whose employer forced her to work increased hours and perform dangerous manual labor when she became pregnant, and ultimately fired her for going to a doctor appointment.
•A gay, HIV-positive administrative assistant who was fired after complaining about discrimination by his supervisor on the basis of his sexual orientation and perceived disability.
•A low-wage immigrant restaurant worker who was fired after falling at work and requiring surgery.

O&G has often collaborated with non-profit organizations to represent thousands of low-wage workers in class action cases for violations of their civil rights and/or their rights under federal and state wage and hour laws. Clients have included garment workers, restaurant kitchen workers, retail clerks, and delivery workers.
