Urge your state legislators to co-sponsor workers' rights bills in Florida

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:

For 2022:

Discrimination in employment, SB322
This bill will create the “Senator Helen Gordon Davis Fair Pay Protection Act” prohibiting an employer from providing less favorable employment opportunities to employees based on their sex.

Family and medical leave, SB688
This bill will create the “Florida Family and Medical Leave Act” requiring an employer to allow certain employees to take family and medical leave to bond with a minor child upon the child’s birth, adoption, or foster care placement and prohibiting an employer from taking adverse action against an employee who requests or obtains family and medical leave.

PTSD and first responders, SB1066
This bill will provide Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) health costs for first responders.
