Important Notice Earthjustice has temporarily closed offices and transitioned staff to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic. We have suspended in-person interviews. We continue to accept applications for all listed positions.

Beginning Apr. 27, 2022, Earthjustice staff will be working two days a week in the office. After six months, the Executive Leadership Team will evaluate whether to adjust our hybrid work plan.

COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Earthjustice recognizes the vital role COVID-19 vaccines play in keeping our communities safe during the pandemic. The reopening of our offices and the importance of in-person activities (travel, court appearances, all staff meetings, etc.) underscore the need for staff to be vaccinated.

As a result, all staff are required to be vaccinated and is a requirement of employment at Earthjustice. All staff will be asked to provide proof of vaccination. Earthjustice defines being vaccinated fully as having received all recommended COVID-19 vaccines, including any booster dose(s) when eligible. Exceptions to this policy may be granted only if required by law.
