In the wake of the #MeToo movement, as well as multiple breaking stories of sexual harassment claims, employers are taking more time to review their codes of conduct and policies against sexual harassment in the workplace. Employer policies can impact your ability to bring a claim in court and in some cases can create contracts between the employer and employee. Workplace Fairness provides easy to read information on protections and employer policies and their lawfulness in our Employer Policies section.

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.

The HIT

Workplace Fairness joins workers' rights organizations in supporting stopping The Health Insurance Tax.

The Health Insurance Tax will take a toll on hardworking Americans by increasing health care costs by $500 a year per family, with more than half the total cost falling on those making less than $50,000. Congress needs to act now to Stop The Health Insurance Tax.

In 2014, tens of millions of Americans saw an increase in their health insurance premiums as a result of the HIT tax being included in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The HIT takes aim at Main Street America, hitting the pocketbooks of working families, stifling small business job creation and impacting our most vulnerable citizens: the poor and seniors.

Congress must act to provide relief from this harmful and poorly constructed tax. Twice they have some together to suspend the HIT – for 2017 and 2019. While this is a welcome and critical first step, Americans need relief now and for the future.

Stop the HIT, Congress must prioritize efforts to provide relief from the HIT now, before it’s too late.-- The Stop The HIT Coalition

Trump v. NAACP

Consolidated with: Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California and McAleenan v. Vidal In 2012, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) adopted a program—known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)—to postpone the deportation of undocumented immigrants who had been brought to the United States as children and to assign them work permits allowing them to obtain social security numbers, pay taxes, and become part of “mainstream” society in the United States. In 2017, after the national election, when the Trump administration replaced the Obama administration, DHS began a phase-out of DACA. The parties do not dispute the authority of a new administration to replace old policies with new policies, but the plaintiffs in this and related challenges allege that the new administration terminated DACA based on a mistake of law rather than in compliance with the law. The legal questions the Supreme Court will consider include: (1) Whether the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to wind down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy is judicially reviewable; and (2) whether DHS’s decision to wind down the DACA policy is lawful.
