promoting labor rights & social justice in Georgia

Georgia Fair Labor Platform
Take action

The Georgia Fair Labor Platform is an informal alliance of independent trade unions, civil society organizations and activists working to improve labor conditions for workers in Georgia. We also act as a solidarity network for our members, offering mutual assistance and support on issues of concern.

Our key focus areas include:

Effective labor inspection

We monitor the work of the Labor Inspectorate through our Labor Rights Monitor, and advocate for the Inspectorate to be strengthened, to better protect workers’ health, safety and labor rights.

Living wages

We advocate for a long-overdue increase to Georgia’s minimum wage, and fight to make sure workers get the pay they deserve.

Stronger, better unions

We strengthen independent trade unions, by building their membership and making them more effective. We are also advocating for their inclusion in the tripartite committee.

Resources for workers

Living Wage

A living wage, simply put, is a wage that allows workers to cover their basic needs and enjoy a decent standard of living. It should cover all necessary food, clothing, housing, education, health care, transportation and other essential needs – plus a bit left over for unexpected expenses. It should also be attainable by working normal hours at one job, without overtime.

Labor Rights Monitor

This tool tracks inspections by Georgia’s Labor Inspectorate, a government body which monitors labor rights and safety in the workplace. Our database includes two types of inspection reports: (1) safety inspections since September 2019 and (2) general labor rights inspections since January 2021. Find out if your employer has been inspected.

Is your employer stealing from you? Wage theft – defined as an employer’s failure to pay money legally owed to an employee – is rampant in Georgia, though many people have no idea what it is. Our interactive Wage Theft Calculator helps you determine whether you’ve been a victim, and lets you share your results on social media.
