Legislative Memo: Definition of “employer” for the purposes of the human rights law

In 2017, workers from across virtually every industry came forward with allegations of sexual harassment as the #MeToo movement threw the pervasiveness of workplace sexual harassment into sharp relief.1 In New York, lawmakers are grappling with rampant – and ongoing – harassment across all employment sectors and within Albany’s halls of power. As part of these efforts to redress sexual harassment, the NYCLU strongly supports passage of A.2483-B/S.3395-A.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
