Project Help

Assisting Washington's injured workers with the early and successful resolution of workers' compensation claims.

One of the services the Washington State Labor Council, AFL-CIO provides is Project Help. Since 1986, this program jointly administered by the WSLC and the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries, has assisted thousands of injured workers in the early and successful resolution of workers’ compensation claims.

The WSLC has compiled a list of attorneys in Washington state with workers’ compensation experience.
