Workplace Fairness Welcomes New Staff

Workplace Fairness Welcomes New Staff in Washington, D.C., to Lead Organization Activities

Workplace Fairness is the #1 Most Comprehensive Online Resource for Information About Workplace Rights

 (Feb. 7, 2020) – Workplace Fairness is pleased to announce that Edgar Ndjatou has joined the organization and is currently Executive Director. Ndjatou takes over from Senior Advisor Paula Brantner.

Brantner also served Workplace Fairness as Executive Director from 2008 to 2016 and as Program Director from 2003 to 2007, for a total of 18 years with the organization. Her departure from Workplace Fairness allows her to expand her focus on sexual harassment and toxic workplace prevention strategies through her rapidly growing consulting firm, PB Work Solutions. You’re invited to stay in touch through her firm’s website or mailing list.

Brantner says of her departure, “I’m confident that Edgar’s long history and experience as an advocate for worker’s rights will ensure Workplace Fairness remains the premier online resource for workplace information and continues to expand its offerings for attorney advocates and those who count on comprehensive legal information. While I will miss working on a daily basis with those with whom I’ve partnered over the last eighteen years of employee rights advocacy, I plan to remain a fierce employee rights advocate and hope those who share our mission will stay in touch.

As Executive Director, Ndjatou directs the sales, marketing, and customer service strategy for the program, a collection of web services for plaintiff-side employment attorneys. Ndjatou also oversees content updates for Workplace Fairness’s award-winning workers’ rights website. Ndjatou has expertise in directing all aspects of programs for a national organization educating workers and their advocates and promoting worker-friendly public policy. He will be media lead for Workplace Fairness and will provide expert commentary to mainstream and digital media on a wide variety of workplace topics, including sexual harassment, workplace privacy and employment discrimination.

Ndjatou’s previous experience includes practicing employment law for nine years, including co-managing his own law firm. As an employment lawyer, Ndjatou represented employees in the federal, nonprofit and private sectors, in all phases of administrative proceedings and lawsuits involving claims under federal, state and local employment laws. He also provides consulting services for individuals and organizations in the following areas: personal career, human resources, administrative and management.

On working with Workplace Fairness, Ndjatou says "I'm excited to be joining this great organization to carry out the mission of educating the public on their rights in the workplace." 

Ndjatou can be reached at edgar@workplacefairness.org or mobile phone (202) 540-0620.

Additionally, Carole Bernard serves as the Administrative and Development Director. Carole is a seasoned nonprofit manager with more than 18 years of leadership experience in executive management, strategic communications, fund development, community and public relations, advocacy, membership recruitment and retention, volunteer management, board development and strategic planning. Since 2015, she has operated her own consulting business, Bernard Consulting & Associates, LLC where she has successfully helped small and large nonprofit organizations exceed their strategic goals. Most recently, Bernard served as the director of communications for the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America, Inc. and the executive director of the Scleroderma Foundation Greater Washington, DC Chapter.
