CELA exists to protect and expand the legal rights and opportunities of all California workers and to strengthen the community of lawyers who represent them. We accomplish this through education and advocacy for worker justice.
CELA is a statewide organization of over 1,300 California attorneys who devote the major portion of their practices to representing employees in individual employment cases and class actions, including cases involving unpaid wages, discrimination, harassment, retaliation and whistleblowing.
The CELA Marketplace offers a directory of businesses providing goods & services to employment attorneys. From language interpreters to judge analytics to financial services, our nearly 1,300 attorney-members visit the CELA Marketplace to find the help they need.
