Request Know Your Rights Workshops

To launch Women Valued, Legal Momentum conducted a first-time “Know Your Rights” workshop for 20 immigrant women at the Women for Afghan Women community organization.

The one-hour workshop, which was translated, provided an overview of workplace rights in New York State, covering 11 key areas: sex discrimination; sexual harassment; equal pay; minimum wage and wage theft; safe workplaces; gender-based violence in the workplace; pregnancy, breastfeeding, and childbirth; paid family leave, child care assistance, public benefits, and collective action.

During the workshop, which provided targeted guidance for immigrant women, participants raised several examples of scenarios where friends and family had dealt with difficult employment issues, noting the importance of having this information.
