It's a busy week for workers' rights issues. Alexander Acosta is officially on the job as Labor Secretary. The House has passed a bill that will allow employers to offer overtime workers paid time off instead of overtime, depriving them of valuable, and sometimes necessary income. And it is rumored that tomorrow Trump may sign a new executive order addressing religious liberty which could seriously and negatively affect the hard won rights of the LGBTQ community. Workplace Fairness is staying on top of developments that affect workers rights.

Workplace Fairness offers easy-to-read workers’ rights information in every area of employment law, and tracks the most current news in the employment law sector. We help over 4 million workers per year get the information they need about their rights in the workplace and connect them with employment law attorneys.
