Shirley Lin Discusses Employment Discrimination Related to Activities Outside Work

Shirley Lin (’11), Assistant Professor of Law at Brooklyn Law School, was quoted in Bloomberg Law discussing how workplace discrimination relating to sex work may also constitute a breach of privacy claim (“Prior Sex Work Haunts Employees Returning to Traditional Jobs,” May 25). Regarding disciplinary actions for activities that take place outside of work, Shirley noted, “If you were to look at a bright line rule it would really be whether or not it is the employer’s business, in both sense of the word, to interfere in an employee’s personal life.”
