Sexual Harassment: Legal Standards

We hear a lot in the news about pervasive sexual harassment in the workplace and people are starting to call it out more and more in the media. But we don't hear much about what to do when you are being sexually harassed, or how the law protects you.

“Bezos, Our Backs Are Tired”: Amazon Workers Strike on Prime Day

On Monday afternoon, in the blistering heat of a 95-degree day, approximately 50 Amazon workers and community supporters rallied outside of a suburban Minnesota Amazon warehouse chanting, “We work, We sweat, Amazon workers need a rest!” That chant was followed by, “Hey Jeff Bezos! Our backs are tired and our funds are low!"

Thought for the Week

"For much of our nation's history, people of color — particularly women — have been marginalized and discriminated against simply because of their hair style or texture. By signing this bill into law, we are taking an important step toward correcting that history and ensuring people of color are protected from all forms of discrimination."

– Gov. Andrew Cuomo
