Susan Lambert

Susan Lambert, associate professor at the School of Social Service Administration, is one of the few researchers focusing on the "work" side of work-life issues, primarily studying low-skilled, hourly jobs. Central to her research - which has received funding from the Ford Foundation, Annie E. Casey Foundation, and the Russell Sage Foundation - is examining whether it is possible to create a better model of work for both hourly low-wage employees and employers. This is especially important at a time when employers are shifting risk from the market onto employees, subsequently undermining workers' ability to access social benefits such as health insurance, unemployment insurance, and paid leave.
