National Archives Workplace Rights

AMERICANS’ RIGHTS IN THE WORKPLACE
Workplace rights in America have sometimes been in conflict with the ideals of a democracy, and the rights of employees and employers have often had disparate qualities and caused many a person to be fired without unemployment benefits.

Workplace Rights National Archives Exhibit

The National Archives is a great place to find out the story of Workplace Rights through
