After about a nine-month hiatus, Today’s Workplace is back. Back in March, Workplace Fairness went through a restructuring which required laying off the staff and operating through the volunteer efforts of the board of directors. I am now the Program Director for Working America, the community affiliate of the AFL-CIO, but serve on the Workplace Fairness Board of Directors. Thanks to a cy pres (residual award) in a recently concluded lawsuit, and the generosity of our supporters, old and new, we are able to resume some of our previous operations, which will ensure that Workplace Fairness, and the WF website, remains the leading source of information and education to individual workers and their advocates nationwide.
Where do you start when you haven’t posted in nine months? It’s enough to give me writers block! So much has happened, it’s hard to know where to start. But so much is happening, I’m sure a number of topics will suggest themselves. There are important Supreme Court cases, alarming workplace trends, and many key developments for workers, whether they know about them or not. I’m thrilled to be back, and will continue to do my part to translate what’s happening out there in the world of employment.
And if you like this blog, and all of the other things that Workplace Fairness does, it’s the time of year where charitable donations are on everyone’s mind. We hope that you have missed our work and want to see more of it in the future. If so, please consider a donation to Workplace Fairness during this holiday season. Or if you are a member of our “One Fund for Fairness,” please know that your 1% contribution this year will be most appreciated and will contribute to ensuring that you hear from us regularly in the future.
