Advocacy group launches ‘Crimes Against Workers’ database
Washington – A new database from the Center for Progressive Reform spotlights state criminal cases and advocacy campaigns against employers that have failed to comply with worker safety laws.
The Crimes Against Workers database details more than 75 workplace incidents involving fatalities or injuries from 16 states. Available resources include incident descriptions, investigative and court files, advocacy materials, and media clips.
“It’s our hope that this tool will help with your efforts to seek justice on behalf of all workers killed or wounded on the job or otherwise subjected to an employer’s criminally culpable and egregious misconduct,” a press release from CPR states.
The release adds that the database “is easy to use for beginners and skilled researchers alike.” CPR, a nonprofit research and educational organization, is scheduled to host a 30-minute webinar tutorial on the Crimes Against Workers database at 1 p.m. Eastern on Nov. 14.
