Discuss Employment Law and Issues With the Leading Proponents of Fair Treatment in the Workplace
SILVER SPRING, Md. (May 18, 2017) – Workplace Fairness believes that fair treatment of workers is sound public policy and good business practice, and that free access to comprehensive, unbiased information about workers' rights - without legal jargon - is an essential ingredient in any fair workplace.
That's why Workplace Fairness has created and maintains the most comprehensive, online resource for free information about workers' rights. Help us get the word out to workers who need to know their rights in the workplace.
WHAT: Workplace Fairness (//www.workplacefairness.org/) is currently offering the media a unique opportunity to conduct interviews with their leaders on topics of employment law, including but not limited to sexual harassment, gender, sexual orientation, religious and other types of discrimination, workplace bullying, fair pay, wage and hour issues, and career help.
Workplace Fairness is well positioned to comment on some of the biggest issues in the news today including the Department of Labor’s recent failure to publicize any of their enforcement actions. Our leaders can also shed light on how to deal with sexual harassment in the workplace, and how the recent spate of highly publicized claims might affect this issue.

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 & 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.
