Settlement Reached in Landmark Civil Rights Case

"Twenty-three immigrant women workers who challenged English proficiency tests announced a settlement in their landmark federal civil rights case against a major multinational corporation. In the course of two trips to the U.S. Supreme Court, Rivera v. Nibco, Inc. created important national legal precedents and strengthened the rights of immigrant workers to bring claims of workplace abuse against their employers. The terms of the settlement are confidential." - LAS-NILC, Dec. 12, 2011.
