Workplace Fairness Honored in 21st Annual Webby Awards
SILVER SPRING, Md. (May 8, 2017) – Workplace Fairness is pleased to announce that we have been selected as a 2017 Honoree in the Employment Websites category of the 21st annual Webby Awards. Workplace Fairness was selected as an Honoree from 13,000 entries this year, placing the organization’s website in the top 17% of all entries.
"It is a great honor to be a Webby Honoree in the Employment category," said Paula Brantner, Senior Advisor, and former Executive Director of Workplace Fairness. "As a nonprofit organization with a small staff and limited budget, this recognition will allow us to reach more workers with the critical information they need in these difficult and uncertain times. The information we provide is available 24/7/365, free of charge to workers who need information about their rights. We take great pride in the employment-related content we share to over 4 million workers each year.”
Established in 1996 during the Web’s infancy, The Webbys is presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences (IADAS)—a 2000+ member judging body. The Academy is comprised of Executive Members—leading Web experts, business figures, luminaries, visionaries and creative celebrities—and Associate Members who are former Webby Winners, Nominees and other Internet professionals.

About Workplace Fairness
Workplace Fairness is a nonprofit organization that provides information, education and assistance to individual workers and their advocates nationwide and promotes public policies that advance employee rights.
Our goals are that workers and their advocates are educated about workplace rights and options for resolving workplace problems and those policymakers, members of the business community and the public at large view the fair treatment of workers as both good business practice and sound public policy.
Workplace Fairness works toward these goals by:
- Making comprehensive information about workers' rights – free of legal jargon – readily available to workers and to advocates and organizations that assist workers;
- Providing resources to support the work of legal services organizations, community-based organizations, law schools and private attorneys that provide free legal information and services to low-income workers;
- Presenting the employee perspective in publications, policy debates & public discussion.
