SALT LAKE CITY – Commissioner Sherrie Hayashi recently announced the appointment of Alison Adams-Perlac as the new Director of the Utah Antidiscrimination and Labor Division. Ms. Adams-Perlac received her undergraduate degree from the University of Utah and her Juris Doctorate from the S.J. Quinney College of Law also at the University of Utah. Immediately prior to her appointment with the Utah Labor Commission, Ms. Adams-Perlac served as an Associate General Counsel in the Administrative Office of the Courts.
During her career, Ms. Adams-Perlac was employed with Catholic Community Services in the Immigration and Refugee Resettlement Department. Later, Ms. Adams-Perlac worked as a Guardian ad Litem, representing abused and neglected children. She then spent four years in the Administrative Office of the Courts, serving as the Juvenile Court Law Clerk to all of Utah’s juvenile court judges before being promoted to Associate General Counsel.
“Educating the public concerning their rights and responsibilities as they pertain to labor and housing issues is important to me,” said Ms. Adams-Perlac. “I am excited to increase the community outreach of the Division so that the residents of Utah are aware of the services they are afforded through the Labor Commission,” she added.
