State Attorneys General Step Up Prosecutions of Employment Violations: Terri Gerstein Authors Report On Increased Workplace Advocacy and Litigation

Terri Gerstein (‘95), Director of the State and Local Enforcement Project at the Harvard Law School Labor and Worklife Program, was quoted in Law360 regarding a report she authored on increased workplace enforcement efforts by state attorneys general in suing employers that short workers on pay, fighting job misclassification, and challenging noncompete agreements binding low-wage workers (“State AGs Taking On Bigger Workplace Enforcement Role,” Aug. 28). “Offices that have done this work have really had an impact and done really great work. These issues are so important right now. They were before the pandemic and now even more so, and they should really be top-line issues for leaders in all of our states and cities.”
