BOSTON COLLEGE LAW SCHOOL MAGAZINE ONLINE – January 12, 2023
Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey has applauded the efforts of Boston College Law School’s Civil Rights Clinic and the Brazilian Worker Center (BWC) for their first-of-a-kind report, “Making it Work for Workers: A Study on the Efficacy of the Massachusetts Domestic Workers Bill of Rights.” The groundbreaking report was released on January 12.
“Domestic workers provide essential services to many families and individuals in Massachusetts, and they have rights and protections under the law,” said Healey, who as attorney general endorsed the groups’ initiative. “Thank you to our exceptional partners at the Brazilian Worker Center and the Boston College Law School Civil Rights Clinic for writing a report that highlights these important laws. I am proud of the efforts by the Attorney General’s Office to advocate for domestic workers, take action against efforts to exploit their work, and ensure they are being paid the wages they are owed.”
