Thank you for visiting the website of the California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA).
CELA's Mission Statement: To promote the interests of employees and to assist the lawyers who represent them.
CELA is a statewide organization of over 1,100 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. We help our members protect and expand the legal rights and opportunities of working women and men through litigation, education and advocacy.
Over the past 18 years, CELA has filed briefs and argued as amicus curiae before the California Supreme Court in many landmark employment law cases. CELA's members have represented hundreds of thousands of working men and women in state and federal courts throughout California.
CELA is an organization of lawyers who represent working people in the State of California. As an association, however, we do not represent people or give them legal advice. We also do not provide lawyer referrals.
Members of CELA do represent working people as independent lawyers and independent law firms.
