The US Parliament has elected Indian-US civil rights lawyer, 48-year-old, Seema Nanda as the solicitor of the Labour Department. She has been appointed by 53-46 votes in the Senate. In her career, she has also served in the Labor Department in the Obama administration.

Congress Asian Pacific Caucus President Judy Chu has expressed happiness over the Senate vote. Chu said, “I am thrilled to congratulate Seema Nanda on her confirmation to serve as Solicitor for the Department of Labour. Whether it’s risks from coronavirus, rising temperatures from climate change, or unscrupulous employers, workers continue to face difficult challenges every day. This is why it’s so significant that President Joe Biden chose somebody with Nanda’s experience as the Solicitor of Labour.”

She also said, “her office will play a central role in fighting legal battles and challenges. With experience as the deputy solicitor and chief of staff at the Department of Labor under Secretary Tom Perez, I know that Seema will be a champion for workers’ rights and vulnerable communities from the very start.”

Seema is currently a scientist of Labour and Work-Life Flow at Harvard Law School. She grew up in Connecticut and has graduated from Brown University and Boston College Law School. She was the first Indian-American to be appointed to the post in June 2018. Nanda’s father was a dentist and was brought up in Connecticut.

During the Obama Administrations, Nanda had done work in the US Labor Department as a deputy solicitor, chief of staff and deputy chief of staff. Earlier in April last year, Indian-American lawyer Seema Nanda announced her resignation as CEO of the national committee of the main opposition Democratic Party. However, she did not give any reason for stepping down.
