What is Workplace Fairness and Why Should Your Readers Know About It?

Extensive Assistance Available to Employees in Need of Advocates and Resources

WASHINGTON (November 15, 2012) - For those who have been treated unfairly in the workplace, Workplace Fairness is an organization that can help. It's also an organization that advocates for and promotes employee rights.

Workplace Fairness is a nonprofit organization working to preserve and promote employee rights. The Workplace Fairness website, www.workplacefairness.org, provides comprehensive information about job rights and employment issues nationally and in all 50 states. It is for workers, employers, advocates, policymakers, journalists and anyone else who wants to understand, protect and strengthen workers' rights.

Resources for help and information for workplace rights in all 50 states, plus job survival tips are just some of the many things available. Information on a wide range of workplace issues and organizations nationwide advocating for workers can be found throughout the Workplace Fairness website. Such topics as hiring, discrimination, harassment, pay & hours, leaves, privacy, health & safety, injuries/illness, whistleblowing and retaliation, unions, termination, worker types and unemployment are available on Workplace Fairness.

There's a link to "Just Answer" - an online resource to ask an employment law question and quickly get an answer. Credentialed employment lawyers are available and can answer questions about general or specific employment situations for a reasonable fee to satisfied users. The Just Answer site is rated an A+ by the Better Business Bureau. There's also a "Find-a-Lawyer" page for those who want to find a lawyer in their area who represents workers in employment disputes, with over 500 attorneys nationwide listed.

The Workplace Fairness website is also a resource for lawyers and advocates looking for workplace news, court decisions, class action news and other important legal information. Featured are news articles on workplace-related issues from published news sources around the country, and the award-winning Today's Workplace blog, www.todaysworkplace.org, featuring the best workplace-related commentary from around the web.

About Workplace Fairness
Workplace Fairness is a nonprofit 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.

The award-winning Workplace Fairness website, www.workplacefairness.org, has newly updated information throughout the site, as part of the Web's most comprehensive resource educating workers about their legal rights in the workplace.
