WE'RE HERE TO HELP
The Chet Levitt Fund for Employment Law is committed to ending employment discrimination by providing financial and other support for important employment rights litigation.
The Chet Levitt Fund makes small grants to cover specific litigation expenses, such as depositions, expert witnesses, and the printing of appellate records and briefs. Grants are not available to pay attorneys’ fees.
Although many of the grants are modest in size, they repeatedly prove their value by helping workers and their advocates achieve favorable outcomes in employment cases.
