October was National Disability Employment Awareness Month, National Bullying Prevention Month, and National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We helped shine a spotlight on many of these different work-related forms of harassment and discrimination. Workers should know what their rights are and how the law protects, or doesn't protect them. Workplace Fairness provides easy to read information on disability discrimination, workplace bullying, and appropriate methods of dealing with workers who've faced domestic violence in our Discrimination and Harassment sections.

Workplace Fairness is committed to educating the American workforce about their rights in the workplace and how to protect and enforce them. Get information about issues in the workplace like harassment, discrimination, unpaid wages and more at Workplace Fairness.

Raise the Wage

Workplace Fairness joins workers' rights organizations in supporting the Raise the Wage Act.

The Raise the Wage Act follows the lead of the growing number of states and cities that have adopted significant minimum wage increases in recent years. For millions of people across the country, working 40 hours or more a week is not enough to support themselves and their families.The benefits of gradually phasing in a $15 minimum wage by 2024 would be far-reaching, lifting pay for tens of millions of workers and reversing decades of growing pay inequality.

The Raise the Wage Act will restore the value of work in our economy and lift struggling workers and their families out of poverty. -- Committee on Education and Labor

The judge ruled that the U.S. EEOC must keep collecting compensation information from employers, rejecting the agency's request that the court-mandated data collection be deemed complete.
