Sarah partners with employers of all sizes to find proactive and practical ways to address issues that could otherwise limit the success of employees and companies.

She is a co-chair of the Pay Equity Practice Group.

She frequently provides training to clients, from front-line workers to executive leadership, relating to harassment, respect in the workplace, accommodations and leave management, FMLA compliance, pay equity and other legal requirements and best practices. Sarah also often serves as an outside investigator and participates on clients’ crisis management teams to respond to harassment and other internal complaints, including those arising at the highest level of an organization.

Sarah also counsels clients every day through challenging leave and accommodation issues under the ADA, FMLA, FFCRA, and state laws. She works with employers to avoid litigation, to create a strong record, and to defend employment actions should it be necessary.
