Employment disputes
Sarah helped me resolve some employment issues over the past couple years. In the first issue, she helped me get some wording removed from a termination letter. I was laid off due to economic reasons yet my termination contract forbade me from ever working for the company or any of its subsidiaries ever again. Sarah worked to have that removed from the contract. Sarah also worked on my behalf to resolve some issues regarding my employer not taking enough out for insurance premiums. Sarah was thorough in her research on my behalf to get the answers I needed.
