The Project

Based at the National Employment Law Project, Sarah provided legal services to home health aides, child care providers and domestic workers to create more equitable working conditions. The project enforced overtime and minimum wage rights and recover unpaid wages; aid workers’ centers and community-based organizations in developing effective legal strategies and legislative advocacy programs to press for new labor rights, and provide transactional legal services to workers seeking to establish worker-owned cooperatives.
