The Los Angeles and San Francisco Daily Journal recently named renowned civil and workers’ rights attorney and #MeToo advocate Toni Jaramilla as one of the Top 75 Labor & Employment Lawyers for 2018.
“I grew up in a working-class family. My parents were immigrants from the Philippines who were honest and hardworking individuals. Yet, they experienced discrimination and bigotry even after becoming U.S. citizens. They were so proud to see me become a lawyer who fights for equality and fair treatment in the workplace. So to also make a Top 75 Labor & Employment Lawyers list, I’m sure my parents are beaming with pride from heaven,” said Jaramilla.
Jaramilla has been working with California Employment Lawyers Association (CELA) leaders and other civil rights allies to review language of various new legislation inspired by the #MeToo movement. She has also been involved in the drafting and reviewing of new bills that would ban “secret settlements,” also called non-disclosure agreements.
