Legal Workshop on Workplace Discrimination

By July 17, 2023August 4th, 2023News

In their efforts to continue their dedication to strengthening and uniting the community, UCLI and Women of the World held their fourth legal workshop at the Women of the World’s office on June 29th, 2023. At this workshop, Laurie Henrie presented on discrimination in the workplace. She is a staff attorney at the Disability Law Center where its mission is to enforce and strengthen laws that protect the opportunities, choices, and legal rights of people with disabilities in Utah. During this session, Henrie spoke on discrimination, the basics of employment law, harassment in the workplace, and disability-based accommodations. 

Women of the world and UCLI were honored to collaborate with such a passionate attorney who represents an organization whose vision is to treat all people with dignity, equity, and respect. They provide legal services and advocacy for people with disabilities facing-disability related discrimination and barriers to accessing services. UCLI and Women of the World look forward to continuing with their mission to enhance the community’s knowledge of the law through their series of workshops. 

We would like to extend a great thank you to Laurie Henrie for her dedication to bringing the community together and enlightening them on the topic. We would like to also thank WOW’s very own case manager, Ghinwa Hneide once again for hosting this event and for translating the workshop into Arabic. We are also grateful to la Pizca Andina for providing delicious Venezuelan catering. We look forward to collaborating with WOW and other local lawyers to create a safe and inclusive environment.

Please also help us spread the word to your friends and neighbors with refugee and immigrant backgrounds; see the flyer below.
