Who We Are:  The Equal Justice Center (EJC) is a non-profit law firm and employment justice organization with offices in Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston. Our employees enjoy a collaborative environment, autonomy in their work, caring collegiality, and a shared sense of mission empowering low-income families and workers to achieve fair treatment in the workplace, in the justice system, and in our shared society – regardless of immigration status.

The EJC is the leading non-profit law firm in Texas specialized in employment law for immigrant and low-wage working people. Our employment and immigration legal teams are known for helping our clients recover unpaid wages, fight against discrimination in the workplace, enforce their basic employment rights, secure DACA protections, become new U.S. citizens, and combat labor trafficking.  Along with providing legal help for individuals and groups of workers, we also advocate for systemic reform to lift wages and improve workplace rights and conditions for low-wage workers and to uphold the rights of the immigrant community. In addition, through a partnership with the University of Texas Law School, the EJC hosts and teaches the Law School’s Transnational Worker Rights Clinic.

The EJC affirmatively values and seeks diversity in its staff and does not discriminate on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, immigration status, religion, socioeconomic status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, disability, family status, or veteran status. Members of underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.

The Position: We’re looking for a dynamic and motivated business manager who is excited about our mission and team and is ready to hit the ground running. Job qualifications and responsibilities appear below.

Once it is safe to return to in-office operations, this position along with a staff of lawyers, paralegals, and the Executive Director will work out of the Austin office located at 314 E. Highland Mall Center, Blvd.  Work schedule can be a flexible combination of in-person and remote work arrangements – within reasonable parameters – both during our current process for safe resumption of in-person office operations, and in our future post-pandemic operations. Vaccination required to protect our team.

Salary is $53,000 or higher, depending on experience, and will be consistent with other small non-profit law firms. Highly valuable benefits package, including generous paid time off, plus gold-level health insurance, dental and vision plans (all 100% employer-paid), along with other benefits.
