"Know Your Rights in Employment" Workshop

at NYC LGBT Center

Wednesday, May 17, 6:30 - 8:00 PM

TLDEF Executive Director Jillian Weiss, Name Change Project Coordinator Amy Helfant and Office Manager Tabytha Gonzalez will lead a "Know Your Rights in Employment" workshop, hosted by New York City's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center. 

Participants will learn about addressing discrimination in the workplace and how city, state and federal laws apply to work bias that is based on sex and gender identity. Through role playing, attendees will gain valuable information about gathering evidence, speaking to human resources managers, initiating a case and finding an attorney. The program runs from 6:30 to 8:00 PM and will be simultaneously interpreted into Spanish. This workshop is part of Transgender Legal's Community Education Initiative.
