Our Mission

FAIR’s mission is to promote diversity within the plaintiffs’ employment bar in California, so the attorneys representing California’s workers are as diverse as those they seek to represent. FAIR also seeks generally to raise public consciousness about worker’s rights and remedies, to provide educational opportunities and programs to individuals who seek to advance the rights of workers, including but not limited to fellowships, internships, and scholarships, and to carry on other educational activities associated with FAIR’s goals.

FAIR's Casino Royale II was another huge success!  On October 18, 2019, FAIR held another fun, festive and successful annual fundraiser, as part of CELA's 32nd Annual Conference in San Jose, California.
FAIR is grateful to have received support from numerous CELA firms, mediators and ADR sponsors and individuals, at an event that was well attended.  Only with these generous donations can FAIR continue its commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in the plaintiffs' employment bar and raising public consciousness about employee rights. FAIR looks forward to funding another year's worth of summer law school clerkships, CELA conference attendee scholarships, NorCal and SoCal Leadership Summits, the year-long post-graduate CELA Policy Fellowship.
The FAIR Board wants to take this opportunity to individually recognize those who contributed and to sincerely thank each Sponsor for their support.

FAIR was created in 2010 by members of the California Employment Lawyers Association. FAIR is exclusively for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. It is incorporated in California as a nonprofit public benefit organization. All contributions to FAIR are deductible to the maximum extent permitted by the law.
