Discrimination in the Brown Collar Workplace
Attorney Leticia Saucedo, an expert in employment, labor and immigration law, will discuss conditions in the immigrant workplace April 16-17 at the University of Wyoming. The UW Social Justice Research Center (SJRC) sponsors the presentations.
Saucedo says the tough working conditions and bad wages in the immigrant workplace are often explained as "merely" exploitative conditions characteristic generally of low-wage workplaces. She will explore the inadequacies of present legal discrimination models in remedying inequities inherent in immigrant workplaces.
Thursday, April 16, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Saucedo will lead a lunch discussion in McWhinnie Hall's Reusser Room, for SJRC members only. To become a member visit the Web site at http://uwyo.edu/sjrc/JoinUs.asp.
Friday, April 17, Saucedo will lecture in Room 302 of the Classroom Building from 2-3:30 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
Saucedo teaches several subjects at the William S. Boyd School of Law at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and co-directs the school's immigration law clinic. She also is a research scholar with the Chief Justice Warren Institute on Race, Ethnicity, and Diversity at the University of California-Berkeley Law School.
