Safety and fairness are at the heart of this section. Over the decades government has played an expanding role in setting standards for workplace safety and health. Issues of fairness include discrimination and the rights of workers to organize. As these issues generate more laws, regulations, and court rulings, the level of complexity grows. This section includes links to more information about safety and fairness in the workplace as well as connections to worker training and job placement resources.
