Advice and Counseling Hotline
ERA's Advice and Counseling Hotline is here to help you understand your legal rights. Free, discreet, individualized advice is available if you are facing:
Different treatment at work or school because of gender
Unequal pay at work because of gender
Pregnancy discrimination or maternity leave problems at work
Sexual harassment at work or school
Mistreatment for complaining about gender discrimination at work
Family medical leave issues

Calls to the Hotline usually take half an hour to an hour and are confidential. Your information will not be disclosed to anyone outside of ERA's legal team. If you have a question about the conduct of your current employer, try to make your call from somewhere other than work.

Please read our Frequently Asked Questions on our website for more information about how the Hotline works.
