CBJC’s Laura Berger Testifies Before NYC Commission on Human Rights on Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
by CBJC Staff December 7, 2017
City Bar Justice Center Attorney Laura Berger testified before the NYC Commission on Human Rights Wednesday evening at their hearing on “Sexual Harassment in the Workplace and a New Era of Immigration Enforcement.” Laura focused her testimony on the additional concerns that immigrants face when reporting sexual harassment and how U Nonimmigrant Status is available in egregious cases where an immigrant faced abusive sexual touch, sexual assault or rape. She also thanked the Commission for issuing U Certifications for immigrant victims but encouraged them to expand public awareness campaigns in multiple languages, so that immigrants will feel comfortable coming forward and making reports when they have been victims of sexual harassment.
