Workplace Fairness (WF) relies heavily on its nationwide network of employee rights advocates to help us promote Workplace Fairness in the workers’ rights community; review and revise the site’s Know Your Rights content; and to fundraise.
Below are the different ways you can volunteer for Workplace Fairness. If you cannot identify a volunteer opportunity that fits your interests, please reach out to WF so that we can explore ways you may be able to contribute to the organization.
The Ambassador Program is for plaintiff-side employment lawyers around the country interested in promoting Workplace Fairness and its 0123 program throughout the year particularly at conferences that WF staff are unable to attend. WF provides the following incentives to Ambassadors: (a) reimbursement of the registration/exhibitor fees for conferences as well as any other pre-approved expenses; (b) a 50% discount on our 1+2 product (deluxe listing and content). At conferences, Ambassadors must hand out flyers, answer questions about WF and its 0123 program, encourage WF newsletter sign-up, solicit donations, and hold a raffle for discounted pricing on 0123 services (50% off for raffle winners and an offer of 30% off for those who participate in raffle).
