Since graduating from Harvard Law School, Conor Ahern has spent more than six years fighting for the rights of workers in the public, private, and non-profit sectors.

Conor began his career at the ACLU’s national office, where he was a Ford Foundation Fellow whose fellowship allowed him to develop litigation to enhance the rights of pregnant and breastfeeding workers through the Women’s Rights Project, founded by the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. After working at the ACLU, Conor worked for three years at the New York City Commission on Human Rights, the governmental agency responsible for enforcing employment and housing antidiscrimination protections within New York City, where he handled administrative litigation, mediations, conciliations, conducted investigations, and pursued settlements for clients who suffered illegal discrimination, with a particular focus on securing reasonable accommodations and fighting for the rights of workers with disabilities.

From 2019 to 2021, Conor worked for the national plaintiffs’ employment firm Sanford Heisler Sharp, LLP, in its Washington, DC office. At Sanford Heisler, Conor handled individual and class action litigation matters focused on workplace discrimination and ERISA violations, with a particular focus on gender, age, and race discrimination claims.
