NYC in New York I'm Jamie Floyd Landis a pre war decision that LGBTQ employees are federally protected against discrimination is a landmark for civil rights but as W. N. Y. C.'s Emily Lange reports federal state and city laws are all different at the federal level the protections only kick in when an employer has fifteen or more employees but those who live in New York state are better protected than that album is an attorney with the New York civil liberties union your state does not apply to people who have any any number of employees all right you're covered which is great it's actually more permissive than the federal law but in New York City the human rights law doesn't protect someone at a work place with fewer than four employees that means if you want to report discrimination at a small workplace your best bet is to file a claim with New York state hours of testimony are currently under way at a public hearing hosted by New York state Attorney General Tisch James where protesters are voicing concerns about the ways in which police handled mass demonstration over the many past weeks Morgan Phillips testified he was assaulted by NYPD officers in Williams park on June fourth following what he says was a family oriented March by McCarron park I got beaten I got hit by a baton I fell to the ground I tried to escape and I was bodies grabbed and body slammed I cracked my head open and then another a police officer I don't know if the one who assaulted me or not grab me and revive me intercepted me and that from his testimony Phillips says he needed five staples in his head the NYPD has not returned a request for comment and governor Cuomo signed an executive order recognizing Juneteenth as a holiday for state employees Juneteenth is observed on June nineteenth and commemorates the emancipation of enslaved people in the U. S. Cuomo said he will propose legislation next year to make it a permanent holiday it is a day that we should all reflect upon today that's especially relevant in this moment in history but the legislation already exists earlier this month assembly member Alicia high demand who represents parts of queens introduced a bill that would make Juneteenth a holiday in a tweet she said governor.
