Health, Safety & Human Rights

We are building a world where more people have control over when, where, and with whom they work. At a minimum, people should have access to safe work environments that honor human rights and support their health and well-being.

Our Areas of Impact

Upholding human rights

Upwork is committed to respecting human rights—the basic standards of treatment to which all people are entitled—in everything we do. We support the ILO’s Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work and expect our team members and business partners to fully comply with all applicable labor and employment laws.
