Sally Dworak-Fisher

Senior Staff Attorney


Sally is a Senior Staff Attorney on the Work Structures team. She has been with the National Employment Law Project since February 2022. Sally supports NELP’s efforts to ensure that all workers—including temporary, contracted, staffing, and app-based workers—enjoy good jobs by working with Black and immigrant-led partners to develop and advance enforceable labor standards.

Prior to NELP, Sally worked as an attorney at the Public Justice Center (PJC) in Maryland. There, she led PJC’s Workplace Justice Project, representing low-wage workers in cutting-edge class and collective wage theft litigation, and worked on campaigns to advance policies to expand and protect workers’ rights under Maryland state law. Sally was awarded the 2017 Benjamin L. Cardin Distinguished Service Award by the Maryland Legal Services Corporation for her outstanding work as a public interest attorney.

In her spare time, Sally enjoys spending time with family, appreciating nature, travel, reading, running, and hiking. She also enjoys a good joke. =)
