Workplace Fairness is a non-profit group dedicated to protecting workers’ rights. Their Web site offers an array of information and resources regarding all aspects of employment. From their site:
Workplace Fairness is a non-profit organization that provides information, education, and assistance to individual workers and their advocates nationwide and promotes public policies that advance employee rights. Our goals are that workers and their advocates are educated about workplace rights and options for resolving workplace problems and that policymakers, members of the business community, and the public at large view the fair treatment of workers as both good business practice and sound public policy. Workplace Fairness works toward these goals by:
- making comprehensive information about workers’ rights—free of legal jargon—readily available to workers and to advocates and organizations that assist workers;
- providing resources to support the work of legal services organizations, community-based organizations, law schools, and private attorneys that provide free legal information and services to low-income workers;
- presenting the employee perspective in publications, policy debates, and public discussion.
Workplace Fairness was founded in 1994 as the National Employee Rights Institute (NERI). The name of the organization was changed in 2001 to reflect our effort to link the knowledge and work of employment rights attorneys with that of non-legal organizations and other individuals who are concerned with issues of fairness in the workplace. Working together, professionals and citizens concerned with issues of workplace fairness more effectively build community awareness of workplace issues and promote progressive changes in employment law, policies, and practices.
