Attorney Application for financial support from the time's up legal defense fund

The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund will help pay the legal fees and costs for select cases of workplace or career-related sexual harassment and related retaliation.

Funding decisions are made based on a set of criteria included in the application. Not all cases that meet the criteria will be funded.

Only attorneys may apply for this TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund financial support.
Instead, please ask your attorney to do it. If you do not have an attorney, please contact the Legal Network for Gender Equity  for help in finding one.

If you are an attorney seeking financial support for costs or fees in a workplace sexual harassment or related retaliation case,  please read in full and complete the application and return it to  [email protected]. The application sets out eligibility requirement and priority criteria for funding. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Not all applications for funding will be granted.

The determination as to which cases will receive TIME’S UP Fund financial support and the amount of support each matter will receive will be made by the National Women’s Law Center Fund LLC as the entity responsible for administration of the TIME’S UP Fund.  These determinations will be made free from the influence of donors and without the regard to the source of funds.

Thank you for your willingness to represent individuals who have faced sexual harassment associated with work and/or related retaliation. We consider attorneys who take on these matters to be critical partners in the fight against sexual harassment, and we are excited about the opportunity to help support this work financially, in order to help create a world where no one must endure sexual harassment in order to make a living and where everyone feels safe in holding harassers accountable.

The TIME’S UP Legal Defense Fund is housed at and administered by the National Women’s Law Center Fund, LLC.
