The Project

Discrimination against workers with family care giving responsibilities is a growing and poorly understood problem. Workplace inflexibility and hostility to family needs are particularly tough on low-income workers and single mothers. My project seeks to raise awareness among these workers – and among legal advocates in New York City – about Family Responsibilities Discrimination. Through outreach, training and public advocacy, I want to help workers protect themselves from such discrimination and vindicate their rights.
