Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in Alabama
Workers deserve more rights
We live in a culture where corporations simply have too much power. Currently, they can:
- Ask us to sign away our rights
- Push us out of our jobs for any reason or no reason
- Work while grieving a loved one
- Check our credit in the hiring process
- Fail to conduct investigations for reports of sexual harassment
- Discriminate against those suffering from domestic violence
- Retaliate against injured workers
- Make it difficult for us to leave toxic workplaces when our healthcare is tied to our jobs
- Silence us when we've been abused
- Pay some workers below minimum wage
- Not grant sufficient sick leave amid COVID-19
- Conduct abusive scheduling practices
- Avoid accountability for discrimination through wages and promotions
- Steal wages
- Block public employees from striking
- Ask about our desired salary ranges, which has a discriminatory impact
- Verbally abuse and sabotage workers with zero accountability
We can change this toxic culture for workers through by passing these bills into law:
Ban of criminal history inquiry, HB 377
This bill will make it unlawful to inquire from a job applicant information relating to arrests or conviction of crimes and criminal record, with exceptions.
Ban of discrimination based on natural hair styles, SB50
This bill will prohibit discrimination in employment, public accommodations, and housing and create a cause of action against employers who discriminate.
Minimum wage, HB185
Employees should not have to work multiple jobs to pay for basic living expenses. This bill will require employers to pay employees a minimum wage of $10 per hour or the federal minimum wage, whichever is higher.
Pregnant Workers Fairness Act, HB1
This bill will provide workplace protections against pregnancy discrimination and related medical conditions.
PTSD and first responders, HB274
This bill will provide Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) health costs for first responders (Department of Labor authorized to regulate the fund).
