About the school's commitment to protecting workers' rights and the FLA Workplace Code of Conduct: In the spring of 1999, Penn joined the Fair Labor Association (FLA), an initiative sponsored by the United States Department of Labor and designed to promote the improvement of working conditions for these workers. To supplement the FLA Code, and ensure proper working conditions at Penn licensee facilities, Penn has formed a Task Force to draft a Code of Conduct for Penn licensees. This Task Force held its first two meetings last week.
