Continuing Legal Education and Programming

CLE Programming

As a service to its alumni, Nebraska Law, in partnership with the student organizations, offers multiple continuing legal education opportunities to all alumni. These programs are typically held over the lunch hour. Because programming develops throughout the course of the semester, registration is exclusively online and alumni are encouraged to check this website routinely as programs are added continuously throughout the semester.

Workers Rights under the Anti-discrimination Provision

Friday, April 21, 2017
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Speaker: Silvia Dominguez-Reese, Senior Trial Attorney at the Department of Justice

University of Nebraska College of Law Room 124

Approved for 1.0 CLE credit hour
Registration

This session will educate attendees about workers' rights under the anti-discrimination provision of the Immigration and Nationality Act.  A representative from the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division's Immigrant and Employee Rights Section (IER) (formerly named the Office of Special Counsel for Immigration-Related Unfair Employment Practices) will describe prohibited conduct under the anti-discrimination provision, and how IER assists workers discriminated against based on their national origin or citizenship status.  The IER representative will also discuss free resources relating to this law, including for those who have limited English proficiency, such as IER's worker hotline.  In addition to providing the public information on the law that IER enforces, IER's hotline intervention program informally resolves problems.  Examples of issues that IER may be able to assist with include when an employer: requests a DHS-issued document for Form I-9 documentation, rejects a worker's driver's license and unrestricted Social Security card as valid Form I-9 documentation, attempts to reverify a permanent resident card or engages in discrimination during E-Verify process.
