At this year’s Low Income Taxpayer Clinic conference, I met and interviewed Omeed Firouzi, a 2018-2020 Christine A. Brunswick Public Service Fellow. He is working with Philadelphia Legal Assistance to educate and provide legal assistance for workers misclassified as independent contractors. He also has advocacy and awareness efforts to decrease this practice among Philadelphia employers.
I would encourage you to learn about and help provide funding for fellowships and other causes like this through the American Bar Association Section of Taxation Tax Assistance Public Service (TAPS). Find out more through this link: http://www.abatapsendowment.org/about-taps
