Terri Gerstein Spotlights Recent Labor Law Enforcement Cases

Terri Gerstein (’95), Director of the State and Local Enforcement Project at the Harvard Law School Labor and Worklife Program, posted a series to The Economic Policy Institute’s Working Economics Blog highlighting state and local actions to protect workers’ rights by new and emerging labor law enforcers (“State and Local Enforcers Standing up to Protect Workers,” Nov. 29). “Recent cases brought by state and local enforcers include a host of violations: construction companies engaging in ‘a pattern of deceit’ to misclassify and underpay workers; unsafe working conditions at Amazon; failure to provide paid sick leave; and the chronic problem of employers misusing interns and not paying for their work.”
