William R. Tamayo '78 Publishes Speech in USF Law Review

William R. Tamayo '78, regional attorney with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, has published "The EEOC and Immigrant Workers" in the University of San Francisco Law Review.  Originally a speech given last year as part of USF's annual Jack Pemberton Lecture, the article outlines the EEOC's motivations in aggressively representing immigrant workers.

Tamayo directs EEOC's litigation in Northern California, Northern Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, and Montana.  Prior to joining EEOC, he was a staff and managing attorney at the Asian Law Caucus (1979-1995) where he  concentrated on immigration and nationality law, employment discrimination, and civil rights issues.  He is also the author of "The Role of the EEOC in Protecting the Civil Rights of Farm Workers," which appeared in the UC Davis Law Review (Volume 33, Issue 4).
