Workstreams: Promoting Labor Rights
Jenifer Rosenbaum (JJ) is a Robina Foundation Visiting Human Rights Fellow for the 2016 academic year where she focuses on a human rights approach to raising standards for low-wage workers on global supply chains- both global production networks and global labor subcontracting chains. Her research and consultations with worker organizations focus on legal, policy, and organizing approaches to raising workplace standards, overcoming forced labor, and promoting new forms of bargaining. She has litigated cases before trial and appellate courts, lead national policy campaigns, and testified before the United States Congress on labor issues of migrant workers. In 2014, she was appointed by United States Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee.
