Advancing work with dignity for every Marylander

A conversation with the Public Justice Center’s Workplace Justice Project

Justice for Breakfast discussion series

Watch a recording of the October 26 presentation below.

Maryland ranks as the country’s wealthiest state, with a median household income of over $86,000. Yet hundreds of thousands of Maryland workers experience a very different reality: wages too low to support workers and their families, independent contractor misclassification that strips workers of critical safety net protections, and/or wage theft that robs workers of what they’re owed for their labor. The PJC’s Workplace Justice Project fights for work with dignity. We pursue that goal by:

  1. Providing know-your-rights education to workers and community groups,
  2. Representing low-wage workers in wage theft lawsuits that both recover unpaid wages for exploited workers and establish worker-friendly legal precedent,
  3. Responding to emerging issues, such as our recent lawsuit to fix allegedly unconstitutional and otherwise unlawful practices in the state’s unemployment insurance program, and
  4. Advocating in the Maryland General Assembly to improve worker protection laws.

Join us for a conversation about what the PJC’s Workplace Justice Project is doing to enforce and expand workers’ rights in Maryland.
