The Employee Rights Advocacy Institute For Law & Policy (The Institute), has received a grant from The Public Welfare Foundation for a research project on public opinions about issues affecting America's workers.
The "Project to Assess Public Support for Stronger Enforcement of Workplace Protections" will examine existing attitudes about government oversight and private enforcement, particularly the issue of ensuring meaningful protections in the workplace. While we know that public opinion is shifting, we do not know the extent of the shift, and whether it extends beyond specific failed industries to laws regulating workplace conditions and to private attorneys' role in enforcement of those laws. The project will assess public attitudes and communications strategies about strong workplace protections.
The Institute is the public interest organization affiliated with the National Employment Lawyers Association (NELA).
