Fair Work Standards is a campaign that promotes work place rights in Limerick city. The campaign is an opportunity for local workers to learn about their basic rights and entitlements under Irish employment law.
The campaign aims to promote fairness at work for all workers, regardless of their type of employment. Every employee has a right to fair and decent work and to have his/her dignity respected at all times.
A further aim of this campaign is to identify and acknowledge workplaces that already engage in fair work practices. Nominations will be received from employees via outreach and by completing an on-line survey.
