This article is part of the Center for Media & Democracy's spotlight on front groups and corporate spin.

EmployeeRightsAct.com is a front group operated by Berman & Co. Berman & Co. operates a network of dozens of front groups, attack-dog web sites, and alleged think tanks that work to counteract minimum wage campaigns, keep wages low for restaurant workers, and block legislation on food safety, secondhand cigarette smoke, drunk driving, and more.

EmployeeRightsAct.com is a project of the Enterprise Freedom Action Committee, a "conservative-leaning 501c organization that has exclusively opposed Democrats running for political office" according to the Center for Responsive Politics.[1] It works in conjunction with the Center for Union Facts (CUF), a "nonprofit organization that fights for transparency and accountability in America’s labor movement" as described on CUF's website.[2] In reality, CUF is another secretive front group of Berman & Co. for individuals and industries opposed to union activities.

According to Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, EmployeeRightsAct.com "advocates for an anti-union bill of the same name."[3]
