ReNika Moore has been appointed new chief of the Labor Bureau in the state Attorney General’s Office, AG Eric Schneiderman announced Wednesday.

Moore joined the Labor Bureau in June 2015 following a stint as director of the Economic Justice Group at the NAACP Legal Defense & Educational Fund. The Harvard Law School graduate was previously an associate at Outten & Golden and clerked for Robert Carter, the late Southern District judge.

Most recently, Moore, 39, has been the top deputy to former Labor Bureau chief Terri Gerstein. The attorney general’s office said Gerstein is stepping down to accept a leadership-in-government fellowship from the Open Society Foundations, where she will study improving conditions for low-income workers and immigrants by the “strategic enforcement” of labor law.

Jack Temple, a spokesman for Schneiderman, said Wednesday that Moore’s salary was not immediately available. Gerstein made $148,569 in 2015 as Labor Bureau chief, according to state payroll records.

The attorney general’s Labor Bureau enforces pay standards such as minimum wage, overtime and prevailing wage, usually for lower-income employees.
