New York State to Allow Attorney's Fees For Successful Plaintiffs In Gender Discrimination Cases

On June 2nd, the New York State Assembly passed A7189, a bill that amends the New York State Human Rights Law to allow plaintiffs who prove gender discrimination in employment, housing, or the provision of credit to recover attorney’s fees. The same bill, which is part of the larger Women’s Equality Agenda, was passed by the State Senate as S3 in January and is expected to be signed by the Governor soon.
