KQED: Women Janitors Win More Protections From Rape on the Night Shift
March 1. 2021
KQED ran an article about the ABM settlement impacting ERA’s clients who faced sexual harassment on the job.
ERA Senior Counsel for Education Equity and Litigation Brenda Adams was featured in the article.
It is a very scary thing to be in their position: to work alone at night in a big empty building, to not speak English, to be paid minimum wage and have that be your sole source of income for your entire family, to be threatened with losing your job, threatened with immigration authorities, and threatened physically with harm," said Brenda Adams, senior attorney with Equal Rights Advocates, which filed the lawsuit in conjunction with Fresno law firm Lang, Richert and Patch.
