Employee Appreciation Day is celebrated on the first Friday in March.

It was created in 1995 by Dr. Bob Nelson, a founding member of Recognition Professionals International. Employee Appreciation Day is a day when employers are called to do something extra for their employees to show appreciation for the work they do.

Of course, it's a nice thing for employers to observe this holiday, but as the managers of staff they already had a bunch of obligations in relation to how they treat their employees.

Worker.gov was created by the U.S. Department of Labor to provide information about worker’s rights and common workplace concerns. This site is not intended to be comprehensive. This compliance assistance tool covers various topics and labor laws enforced by several Federal agencies:

  • The Labor Department’s (DOL) mission is to foster, promote, and develop the welfare of the wage earners, job seekers, and retirees of the United States; improve working conditions; advance opportunities for profitable employment; and assure work-related benefits and rights.
  • The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing Federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person’s race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, or genetic information.
  • The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) enforces Federal laws prohibiting employment practices that discriminate on the grounds of race, sex, disability, religion, national origin, and citizenship status.
  • The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is an independent Federal agency vested with the power to safeguard employees’ rights to organize and to determine whether to have unions as their bargaining representative. The agency also acts to prevent and remedy unfair labor practices committed by private-sector employers and unions.”
