Workplace Fairness provides the latest developments in high-profile sexual harassment cases, including information about the arbitration clauses which silence those targeted for harassment. We continue to be an important resource for those who want to learn more about workplace harassment.

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. Visit our site and share us on social media to help us help workers and their advocates.
