Workplace Fairness Appeals for Support in Its Efforts to Empower America’s Workers During COVID-19
WASHINGTON (April 20, 2020) – The devastating economic effects of COVID-19 on the world of work are being felt across the nation with business closings, layoffs and cutbacks, as well as the passing of new laws, rules and regulations. Workers are more vulnerable now than perhaps at any other time in our modern history. They seek answers, security and information to protect themselves and their families during these uncertain times. Workers and advocates for workers are turning to Workplace Fairness and visiting our COVID-19 Resource Pages for up-to-date information about workers’ rights and COVID-19 laws.

Since 1994, Workplace Fairness has been an anchor for workers nationwide, providing the #1 most comprehensive online source of free information about workplace rights and about measures to help resolve workplace problems with its dynamic website, www.workplacefairness.org. We ensure that workers and their advocates have access to the critical information, education and assistance provided in our 400+ webpages, and we promote public policies that advance employee rights. We believe that policymakers, members of the business community and the general public should view the fair treatment of workers as both good business practice and sound public policy.
We also serve as a resource for the media, lending our expertise for articles on informing and protecting employees. You can visit our press room to view our recent media coverage related to COVID-19 and other relevant topics, like Discrimination, Paid Leave, Sexual Harassment, Unemployment Insurance, Workers Compensation and more.

We can continue to expand our online platform with new and updated resources, and we can build new programs and projects that will help us reach more workers and provide even more help and information to America’s workforce.
