Squaring off against your employer is often a classic David and Goliath story. You may have faced workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, or be due unpaid wages. And when you did stand up for your rights, you may have been unfairly terminated. While you have the law on your side, it seems like all the money and power reside with the employer. Your bills continue to pile up, and you’re desperately seeking a new job to keep yourself afloat while the other side just deflects and delays — sometimes for years.
They’re offering you a mere fraction of your case’s value, but you’re tempted to take it just to stop the pain. An employment lawsuit loan can help to level the playing field so that you can meet your current and mounting expenses while you fight for justice for your employment law claim. Employment lawsuit loans are entirely risk-free to the borrower. Employment law legal funding acts as a cash advance on your future settlement, providing the money you need now to pay your bills and meet your family’s needs while your lawsuit progresses through the system. There is no credit check and no income verification is required. You can receive from $500 up to $2 million depending upon the strength of your employment law claim.
With Tribeca Lawsuit Loans, the relief you need is just a tap, click, or phone call away! You can apply for the employment lawsuit funding you need for FREE via Tribeca Lawsuit Loans’ Apply Now page.

Types of Employment Law Legal Funding
Violations of employment law take many forms. While the specifics of each matter, all employment law claims are painful and a financial burden on the plaintiff. And each can drag on for years before the compensation comes through. At Tribeca, we find all types of employment lawsuit loans, including:
- Labor law violation lawsuits
- Workers’ compensation lawsuits
- Wrongful termination lawsuits
- Workplace sexual harassment lawsuits
- Unpaid wages lawsuits
- FELA Federal Employer Liability Act lawsuits
- Jones Act lawsuits
- Disability discrimination lawsuits
- Racial discrimination lawsuits
- FMLA Family & Medical Leave lawsuits
- Whistleblower and QUI TAM lawsuits
- Workplace construction accident lawsuits
The complexities of employment law claims and the resources of large companies make these kinds of lawsuits last a long time, sometimes even years. Meanwhile, your bills continue to rise even as you miss out on wages due to your employment law issue. Employment law legal funding, also called employment lawsuit loans, provides money now to help you meet today’s needs while waiting on tomorrow’s compensation.
How Can Employment Lawsuit Loans Be No-Risk?
When you are pushed to the point of launching an employment lawsuit, you may not have expected the process to drag out so long. Now, you’re likely faced with no income and mounting debt. As much as you may need employment law legal funding, you may be concerned about taking on more debt.
But, funding for an employment lawsuit is very different from conventional loans like a car loan or credit card debt. We structure all the lawsuit loans we fund as non-recourse loans. The critical difference is that repayment of a non-recourse loan can only come from the loan’s collateral, in this case, your future settlement. Your income, savings, or property can never be attached to repay the employment lawsuit loan. This means:
- You are NOT personally liable for any non-recourse lawsuit loan debt.
- Your loan approval is NOT based on any credit check or bank statements.
- Because the money we provide is considered part of your eventual settlement, it is tax-free in most cases.
If you lose your lawsuit, you don’t have to pay us back at all! This is why we can say that the employment lawsuit funding we provide is 100% risk-free for you. Tribeca Lawsuit Loans charges just a simple, non-compounding interest rate. Best of all, legal funding can actually help you to get a better settlement!
How Can Employment Law Legal Funding Help Me Get a Better Settlement?
We all know the legal system is slow and backed up. Yet the backlogged case docket is not the only reason or even the main reason your employment lawsuit drags on for years. The reason is simple: Your erstwhile employer and their attorney don’t want to pay you what your case is worth. They want a bargain. So, they offer you a small fraction of your case’s value — typically around 30-35% — and then they delay and distract, doing all they can think of to drag out the negotiations as long as possible.
Meanwhile, your bills are piling up, and your financial stress builds. Their goal is for the pressure to grow, eventually forcing you to settle for the pittance they offer. These delay tactics are harming our legal system — they’re entirely legal — and very effective.
When you accept legal funding for your employment lawsuit, you rob Goliath of his best weapon against you — your financial distress. You can use the money to pay your bills and can afford to give your attorney the time required to build the best case to get you the full compensation your case warrants.
And, since Tribeca is invested in the successful settlement of your employment law claims, we may also provide your attorney with case funding to pay the steep litigation costs like expert witnesses that can further strengthen your case.
Which Bills Will an Employment Lawsuit Loan Cover?
There are absolutely no restrictions on the way you can use your employment law legal funding. Most of our clients use it for expenses like:
- Medical bills
- Rent or mortgage payments
- Utility bills
- Legal fees or expert witness fees
- Daily costs like food and transportation
- Replacement for lost wages
You can think of employment lawsuit loan money as a way of pulling cash from your future settlement or compensation package. It’s already your money, but you’re borrowing it (through Tribeca) from your future self. Use it however you see fit while your case resolves.
At-Will Employment and Wrongful Termination Employment Law Claims
In the United States, most people are employed “at will,” meaning their employment can be terminated at any time, for any lawful reason, or seemingly no reason at all. Employees also have the right to quit at any time. So, how can you possibly sue for wrongful termination?
Even though you were employed “at will,” your employer does not have the right to fire you, demote you, or cut your pay or benefits for an illegal reason. For instance, your employer cannot retaliate against you for refusing an unlawful directive, rejecting unwanted advances, or being a whistleblower. You cannot be terminated for reasons of discrimination due to race, sex, gender, or disability, among others. If your employer fired you for an illegal reason, the law is on your side. And Tribeca Lawsuit Loans can provide the employment law legal funding to pursue your case.
Employment Law Legal Funding at Any Stage
Employment law claims are complicated, both in their fact pattern and decision-making. Most people don’t want to sue their employer and will look for any way out of a bad situation before concluding that they must file a lawsuit. And once you file, the case can drag on for years.
Tribeca Lawsuit Loans provides funding for employment lawsuits at every step of the case — including before you file!
- Pre-Filing – As long as you are the plaintiff who stands to collect compensation for an employment law claim, and as long as you have an attorney or law firm representing you, Tribeca should be able to provide you with the money you need.
- Pre-Trial – The investigation and fact-discovery stage of litigation is expensive. This is where your attorney gathers the information required to make your case. You and your employer will both be deposed, and your damages will be evaluated.
- During Trial – Don’t fall short of the cash you need for your attorney to argue your case convincingly. While most employment law cases do not go to trial, the threat of a possible trial can motivate your employer to provide appropriate compensation.
- Appeal – Once you win your case, you would think the financial stress would evaporate. In most cases, the employer pays up. However, if yours chooses to appeal, the process drags on further, and your expenses continue to mount.
You can get an employment lawsuit loan at any stage, even before your case has been officially filed. Please note, however, that pre-settlement funding like this is only provided when it is clear that you have a case and are prepared to file a claim against the at-fault party. Therefore, we will need to discuss the matter with your attorney before approving any application before an employment law claim has been filed.
How to Apply for Employment Lawsuit Funding
Applying for funding for an employment lawsuit is easier than you might think and completely free, with no obligation. Because this is a non-recourse loan, we require:
- NO credit check
- NO employment verification
- NO asset evaluation, and
- NO income verification
Instead, we are focused on the quality of your case. So, our employment lawsuit loan application asks for the following:
- You and your attorney’s name and contact information
- What type of employment law claim do you have
- What state do you live in, and where were you employed
- How much money would you like to receive
Unlike many legal funding companies, we will speak directly with your attorney to learn more about your case and to determine just how we can help. We require that our clients have legal representation to protect both their interests and our own Far more employment law claims are found in the employee’s favor, and with far larger settlements when an attorney argues the case than for the employee representing themselves.
