The training will present a basic overview of one of the most progressive municipal civil rights laws in the country, with a focus on areas where the New York City Human Rights Law is more protective than similar federal and/or state statutes. We will analyze specific aspects of the City Human Rights Law, including its anti-discrimination law in employment and housing, as well as newer amendments and emerging practice areas. The training will also discuss the pros, cons, and methods of bringing claims before the NYC Human Rights Commission. This is a training intended for advocates at all levels of exposure to anti-discrimination law and practice.
